Diane Burrell -(Former primary teacher and current co-ordinator of Poetry Workshops for The Banjo Paterson Poetry Festival in Orange NSW)
In 2018/2019 I was fortunate to work with Marco presenting poetry performances and writing workshops in local Primary Schools. His work with the children was excellent, gaining their interest and enthusiasm immediately. He gave them great opportunities to interact, dress up and take part in the poetry presentation. Even in brief writing workshops, the students, of varied ages, were able to produce insightful and descriptive results. Staff really enjoyed Marco, all requesting repeat performances at the next opportunity.
