Welcome to Wordsworth Reflections, the mobile blogging website of fifteen High School students. These students’ mission is to publish blogs directly from their mobile phones, in the outdoors, in the midst of nature.

The poet William Wordsworth saw cities as an alienating. The antidote to this alienation was to remove onself from the city and commune with the natural world.

So, why study his poetry inside a house, in a suburb, in a city?

Click to view students’ reflections, nature poetry, urban poetry, analysis of Wordsworth, or quite simply the best blogs from the whole project.

We welcome any comments!

Students

Over the next few weeks, while you’re on holiday, why not post a few blogs? Your posts can be any combination of text, images and video (emailed to go@utterz.com), plus audio (by ringing the phone number from your mobile).

Ideas for your first blogs:

– compose your own nature poetry.

– visit urban locations (the train station, the city, the shopping centre), and stop and reflect on human society as you observe it. Compose poetry on human industry and society. Post reflections on what you observe.

– research William Wordsworth and post a text blog about what you’ve learnt (simply email your text blog from your school address to go@utterz.com). If you attach photos, they’ll appear in the blog.

Students, I’ll categorise your blogs as they come in, and we’ll make them accessible via sub-menus here at the website. You can leave comments for each other, just don’t use your real name.

Finally, you can recommend blogs for the special category: “THE BEST BLOGS” which will feature the best we have to offer.
