You can vote either on our Facebook page, by typing the name of your favourite poem in the comments beneath the post about this, or by emailing the name of the poem to Faye@midpenninearts.org.uk

I am currently studying Art and Design at Leeds University and have joined the Mid Pennine Arts team, working as Projects Assistant in order to complete a Year in Industry.
I can’t believe I have been part of the team for over a month already, and what a great month it has been! I have already gained so many skills and a lot of confidence to take with me and I am looking forward to the next year as Projects Assistant… whether this requires me putting on my explorer hat, researching numerous radicals, working with members of the public or making events such as Burnley Canal Festival a success!
What a great team Mid Pennine Arts is to be a part of, everyone has been so welcoming and given me lots of tasks to get stuck into! I have particularly enjoyed carrying out workshops in schools and at events, being creative with young people and welcoming them into the Explorer Club!
Another highlight has been working with community groups, designing flags for Burnley Canal Festival. In particular working at a women’s refuge, an amazing workshop was carried out here which I feel very lucky to have been a part of and a very special flag was designed…. I can’t wait to get sewing!
Already, I have been very much inspired in terms of my own practice and how this internship may influence the main subject of my dissertation when I return to University for my final year… I am not sure I will want to leave however!
Nick and Melanie have already taught me lots about Mid Pennine Arts and the various projects that they are involved in, I hope as time continues I can bring something new to the team and take on more ambitious roles and tasks!
