Michael Rosen: Poetry is for Everyone

Apples and Snakes are the supreme stable for poets, rhymers, spoken wordsmiths, performers of rhythm and joy. For 30 years they have been making these thoughts, sounds and ideas into the minds of hundreds of thousands of people of all ages, backgrounds and qualities.

They have been in the forefront of reminding us that poetry is for everyone and about everyone. They have celebrated our diversities, our similarities, bringing to mind we are global and local.

I am proud to have been connected to Apples and Snakes, almost from the beginning. I remember with great fondness the sessions I’ve done with them and for them. I always learn something new whenever I am involved. I look forward to being involved again in the future.
