Our Poets in Education Scheme

Apples and Snakes was first set up in 1982 by a group of poets in order to establish more performance poetry events across London. Now thirty, part of our work in education concentrates on delivering inspirational workshops and residencies with schools, youth and community groups, prisons, libraries more.
