Neal has been running workshops for us over the last six years. He has worked with groups of KS3 and KS4 pupils referred for weak motivation, low confidence, poor behaviour, social communication or other needs. He has engaged and motivated every group and the outcome has always been a booklet of poetry they are extremely proud of.

It was absolutely fantastic – Neal was a great leader, the visiting staff were very attentive and joined in, and the students produced some astounding poetry. It definitely exceeded my expectations!

Neal visited our school on World Book Day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the poetry workshops and were inspired to write some very creative poems that they loved sharing with the rest of the school. Teachers remarked on how motivating Neal was to get them enjoying their writing.
— Silvana Lewis, Lit. Lead, Stag Lane Junior School
The children were highly motivated and wrote some very creative poems, they were inspired by Neal’s workshops. Positive feedback was received by parents too and the children are still writing their own poems at home and they are eager to perform these to their classes.

Your approach to poetry is amazing. You have made this kind of literature interesting and I have no doubt that a variety of age groups will have fun with your interactive activities.

INCREDIBLY successful…I’ve booked Neal for Nat Poetry Day next year too!
— Gill Ward, Librarian, Fortismere Secondary School
I was very impressed with the pace of the lesson and the energy with which it was delivered. Mr Zetter is obviously a very talented man who has great success motivating children.

The ‘Write Here, Write Now’ poetry project with service users of the North East London Mental Health Trust was a fantastic success. I would highly recommend Neal to anyone looking for a literature activity

The young people who attended got a lot out of the workshops from confidence both in writing and performing.
