My Heart Skips, Skips A Beat

On Saturday 6th February 2016, I went to The Bluecoat to take part in the ‘Poetry by Heart’ County Championship; a competition where I had to perform two poems in front of judges, such as poets Andrew McMillan and Mark Pajak, with a number of other contestants. I recited ‘The Ballad of Reading Gaol’ by Oscar Wilde and ‘Wedding’ by Alice Oswald. It was an amazing experience that was both fun and challenging and I’d definitely do it again given the chance.
