Poetic License – Asserting Identity through Poetry

Poetic License – Asserting Identity through Poetry

Workshop for grades 6th through 12th

This workshop targets students who wouldn’t typically identify as writers and guides them through the experience of transforming their personal narrative into poetry. It challenges students to use figurative language and poetic devices in an organic and authentic way, while encouraging connection and building empathy among fellow students. Poem-starter activities might include mining memories of our childhood home, personifying powerful abstract concepts, and imagining the pros and cons of being endowed with superpowers.
