Poetry in the Schools: The Voice Within Us

In February and March of each year, talented Northwestern undergraduates lead a series of workshops in poetry for Evanston area students. Overseen by members of the Poetry and Poetics faculty, these workshops¬†grant high school students the unique opportunity to interact with Northwestern undergraduates and faculty, and to¬†explore the art of writing poetry as a vital means of creative expression, imaginative inquiry, and verbal experiment. The workshops culminate in a public reading of student poetry during the Northwestern Writing Major’s April festival of writing. We’ve gathered photo highlights from the past three years below. And you can watch videos from year 2 here, and year 3 here.
