Poetry makes the news

The metro declared that poetry isn’t dead.

I knew that already. In fact, it’s because poetry is so alive within the poetry slam community that I’m so passionate about bringing poetry into classrooms.

In workshops I introduce students to a living culture of poets by performing my work and playing the work of other poets. I ask students what this poetry means to them. I answer questions about being a poet and share my excitement for what poetry makes possible – a way of being in the world, a way of seeing anew, a way of sharing and community building… 

Poetry is alive and well and even in the news! And I got to play poster boy, with this photo they used.
