Thank you Joshua for giving something back and inspiring our young writers with your comments! Over to you:
I am Joshua Seigal – a poet, performer and workshop leader from Barnet, London. After completing a Master’s degree in Philosophy at Oxford University I started to realise that I am more interested in people than in merely abstract ideas.
I write and perform primarily for children. I have showcased my work at places such as the 2012 London Olympics, The London Festival of Education, and The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where a reviewer described me as “exactly the kind of person to interest children in poetry.” I regularly run workshops in schools, and have had my work published in various magazines, journals and anthologies.
