詩人 Poetry anthologiserVerner Bickley

VERNER BICKLEY, MBE, PhD, is a well-known "voice", educationist, and adjudicator, who has held director-level positions in Universities and Government Departments. He is Chairman of the English-Speaking Union (HK) and Co-Founder of the International Proverse Prize for unpublished writing. He travels frequently to judge public-speaking competitions and regularly adjudicates verse and prose speaking and reading, as well as drama and choral speaking.

His Poems to Enjoy is a five-book series of graded poetry anthologies for readers of all ages. Books 1-3 are especially dedicated to children. Audio recordings of all the poems in each book, read by Verner and his wife Gillian are provided in an accompanying CD. The recordings are delightful to listen to. Also, they assist with pronunciation and help those preparing for solo verse speaking and reading, duo and group-work and choral-speaking in speech festivals.

Verner will explain the work of an anthologiser and introduce the poems. He will also share his experience as an adjudicator and educator.
