Author Steven Herrick visits BGS!

Celebrated wordsmith, Steven Herrick, delighted our Year 7 and 8 boys with his second Author Visit to Brighton Grammar this week, his quick wit and wacky poetry performance captivating us all from first verse.

Whilst sharing background details about the characters, setting and plot of his verse-novel The Simple Gift, currently being studied in Year 8 English, Herrick championed poetry and encouraged the boys to discover their creative inspiration, his own being Pi O, a Greek-Australian poet whom he met during his early years.
