Sam blogs about the Karl Nova workshop

After the talk, ten pupils had the chance to take part in a workshop with Karl.

As soon as we entered the classroom, you could tell it was full of energy. Karl was so welcoming and had a great sense of humour. We could ask him anything about music, rap and poetry and he knew everything that happens behind the scenes. We learned how much people get paid to write lyrics and how much it costs to put a song together.

Karl really wanted the best for us and to give us a different perspective poetry; we got to have a go at writing our own under his guidance. I think we were all very lucky to have Karl come and speak to us as a year group, let alone have a little class with him. All round I really enjoyed the day.
