Poetry On + Off the Page (Ages 12-14)

Join us as we take a deep dive into the wild world of the written word. In this class, we'll do daily creative writing exercises, designed to spark our imagination and engage our memory and skills of observation. We'll play around with the sounds and rhythms of words, and learn how the way we say things can be used for self expression. And we'll explore some ways poetry can come off the page and live out into the world around us.
