Anne’s poetry makes the grade

Module leader for poetry at the University, Anne Caldwell, is already an award-winning poet and literature specialist.  She has taught on the University of Bolton’s MA and undergraduate programmes since 2009.

Now the AQA exam board has approached Anne’s publisher, Cinnamon Press, to request that one of her poems is featured in their exams, either A level or GCSE, in a few years’ time. ‘So students who come here to study will have already written in response to my work. Very flattered to be asked,’ said Anne. One of Anne’s current students will be having a brush with fame soon too, second-year Anabela Vero has a 20 minute slot on Bolton FM next week when she will be reading her poetry.
