I discovered Ms. Jane Zamudio not only can write poems ~ she sings amazing opera arias!
MS. JENNIFER KERN invited us to come to the BACHMAN LAKE LIBRARY BRANCH to do our poetry workshop. . .AKA POEM HIKE!
What amazing poets ~ our new friends ~ Carlos, Sofia, Ivan, Marta, Amiya, Ms. Blanca, Ms. Jane, Ms. Jennifer! They joined us for poetry writing exercises and poetry readings and poetry books!
Ms. Blanca writes poems and her two amazing children write amazing poems, too!
Do you know I am a poet? I can make it rhyme. Do you know you are a poet? Just begin, you’ll do fine.
You can be a Poet. Just get some words and grow it! I was going to sing you a song. But my voice is all wrong. So I wrote you a poem instead. To stick all day in your head!
I get to visit schools and libraries all for the purpose to inspire young people to write their poems for the Dallas Public Library “Express Yourself YOUTH POETRY COMPETITION”.
Students Stretch into their Poetic Selves!
Writing, writing, writing!
Every year the Dallas Public Library sponsors the “Express Yourself YOUTH POETRY COMPETITION for students grades 2 – 12.
This is my second year to participate in teaching Poetry Workshops in various schools. What a delight it is for me to see all these young people writing poems!
