The main part of Shake the Dust has now come to an end, but we’re still looking for people to contribute – especially to the blog!


Blog for Shake the Dust

If you’re interested in writing a blog post for us or getting involved on the site, please email

We’re particularly interested in 150-200 word posts about the following:

Poetry Changed Me – has Poetry changed you? This is your chance to explain how.
Poetry Heroes – who has inspired you in the world of Poetry? Do you have any Poetry Superheroes? We would love to hear your thoughts. Videos can be included in the post.
Old School – this is where young and old get the chance to be open about which teachers, youth workers, educators and role models have influenced and inspired them and why – you could even get that inspirational person to write a blog post too.

These are just some of the ideas you can blog about but we welcome all ideas and creativity so get those thinking caps on and bring your personality into the mix, Shake the Dust off!
