Griffithstown Canal Poems

Caban Sgriblio is contributing to the Canal and River Trust’s Hinterlands project working with pupils from Griffithstown Primary school exploring and writing about the canal.

 

Former Caban Sgriblio participants are also mentoring their peers at Gwernyfed High School leading creative writing workshops for younger members of the school.

 

 

“Peak has helped me a lot. It has given me confidence with everything to do with writing and drawing. Thank you Children in Need and Peak!”  – Jorge

 

As part of the 2018 Children in Need celebrations, one of our Griffithstown Caban Sgriblio participants was interviewed by BBC Radio 2 to talk about his experience of working on the project and how it has helped him. You can read Jorge’s poem Field and listen to the audio clip featuring Jorge and his dad Dean.
