(Photograph) - Selling poetry: Rose from Riverside junior school, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, reads other pupils' poems written for the town's Poetry Shop initiative. The shop was set up as part of the town's arts festival which runs till July 4. It aims to make poetry part of the furniture with verse on the walls and 'speaking chairs' where people listen to poems. Writers including children's laureate Michael Morpurgo have sent messages and John Hegley has held poetry workshops in local schools as part of the project.
