What It’s Like poetry workshop

Stanley Kunitz has said, poetry “is ultimately mythology, the telling of the stories of the soul.” Using poems from The Secret of Me, The Girl in the Mirror, and poets author Meg Kearney admires, teens will explore how diction, image, and metaphor can work to create poems that express the otherwise inexpressible. Teens will draft poems in class and we’ll discuss and celebrate them as a group. They'll be given a writing challenge to take home as well.
