This summer, we are introducing youth drop-in classes one Saturday per month for three distinct age groups: 7–9, 10–13, and 13–18. We invite all young people who are interested in poetry to participate in these classes, regardless of their writing experience.
In each class, teachers will guide students through a short lesson and a few example poems that illustrate specific skills. Then, teachers will offer a prompt and support students in an independent writing exercise. Afterwards, students will have the opportunity to share their work and reflect on their experiences.
This summer, there will be Youth Summer Saturdays on June 24, July 22 and August 19
