Important Session Information:


Poetry, and the love of it, begins at birth.  The first pulses of our heartbeats are our bodies first poems.  Unfortunately, we've grown too good at making poetry a silo-ed unit filled with perfunctory forms that become nothing more than fill-in-the-blank worksheets.  Our students learn to loathe "the poetry unit", and as a consequence poetry itself.  But, what if there were a different way?  

Join us as we bid goodbye to the acrostic and embrace the authentic.

We will be writing, so please come with your device and your writer's notebook.
