Description

This program will emphasize hands-on poetry writing for attendees, using structured and formulaic approaches to writing poetry. This will be accompanied by PowerPoint examples and descriptions on how this approach has been used to foster creativity and a love of poetry in children, tweens, teens, and ESL young adults in schools and public libraries. Participants will be encouraged to share a few of the poems. Handouts will detail must-have poetry books and numerous online resources.
