Poet Aki Schilz visit

CTK: Emmanuel was very fortunate to have Aki Schilz recently come and talk to our students as apart of The Speakers for Schools outreach programme.

Aki is a writer, poet and Director of The Literary Consultancy, the UK’s first and leading editorial assessment service for writers. Aki explained to students about her background and how she gained a BA in English and French Literature from the University of Oxford, and then an MA in Creative Writing with Distinction from Bath Spa University.

Aki explained to students the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in the world of literature. Interestingly she highlighted a recent survey in the 'Metro' which found that over one third of young people aspire to be 'YouTuber' in their future careers.
