Participants will meet once a week for three weeks to read, discuss, and respond to contemporary works of poetry. Participants will analyze a variety of different poetic works, and learn poetic and storytelling skills through the creation of their own creative work. Lessons include a range of activities designed to strengthen poetic and storytelling skills and develop personal creativity. Campers will have the opportunity to explore the Foundation's library and create their own work in response to what they find there.

FREE. All materials and supplies will be provided. All experience levels welcome, open to students in 9th-10th grade, 15 participants. Email to register.
