Program Description


Make your own free-form poetry using a page from an old book. No skill required! Rather than writing your own words, you will be eliminating text from a printed page to give the remaining words new meaning. Whether you’re an experienced poet or not, this is a relaxing way to exercise your creativity. 

This program is for students in grades 9-12.

Supplies will be provided.
