Verse into Song
Verse into Song
Here's an opportunity for anyone in North Walsham, adult or child:
Let the Worldwide Song Project turn your poem into a song!
As Project director I've a team of musicians who are ready and waiting to be inspired!
Throughout its 10 year history the Project has set nearly all the poems people like - and unlike - you have sent it from around the world.
The first to contribute were the children on Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic - and then their parents.
To our delight, the Queen approved an island issue of Song Project stamps in 2012.
While living up to its worldwide billing, the Project welcomes local contributions, too - on any topic under the sun.
I live in Trunch, so north-east Norfolk gets special attention!
Let's make your poem sing!
If we succeed you'll receive your song arranged for voice and piano.
(It will reach you as a pdf plus synthesised sound. Frame it or sing it - it's up to you!)
Keen contributors like those on Tristan also have the thrill of seeing their songs in print.
Send us your poems and let's give North Walsham its own songbook!
A page from 'Songs for Sark'
(the songbook produced for
the Channel Island).

'Songs for Sark.'
Remember - Taking part in the Project won't cost you a penny.
Use the form below to ask any questions, or email me at [email protected], which is where to send poems.
Poems by under 16s should reach me via parents, carers or teachers, stating the author's age.
I do my best to keep in touch with everyone who supports the Project, even if their poems aren't set.
Tony D Triggs
Director, the Worldwide Song Project
