Youngest-ever winner of Wordsworth poetry prize

Rowan Ashworth took the title when his poem, Wild is a child, was judged the best from almost 200 entries from all over Cumbria. The fifth annual award, judged by descendants of the poet William Wordsworth, carried an extra cash prize this year of £100. Rowan also collected a trophy, and his poem will be displayed in the drawing room at Rydal Mount where Wordsworth created much of his epic work.

Parts of an Argument Essay. How to Write an Argumentative Essay by Shmoop. 10 Fun Jobs You Wish You Had. The Science That Made Frankenstein. (Inside Science) -- It has all the makings of a great monster story: an attempt to draw lightning from the sky, a scientist passionate to show that electricity held the secret of life, body parts and, of course, reanimation of the dead.

The Science That Made Frankenstein

A sad story, briefly told: A poem by Simon Armitage

We take what we can get, gather the details, and together with the patient, construct a more coherent and, hopefully, a more liberating narrative. We know we never have the whole picture—we’re always connecting the dots, making constellations from only the most visible stars.

Book Review: 'The Outsiders' By S.E. Hinton
