Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? To celebrate, we’re participating in Dear Poet, an annual project from the Academy of American Poets that invites young people to write letters in response to poems by award-winning poets from across the country. Participating students may even have their letters selected to appear on poets.org alongside a response from the poet they addressed. Check out 826 student Elizabeth’s 2020 letter, and the response from poet Jaki Shelton Green, here!

In this workshop, students will read, reflect on, and respond to poetry, exploring what resonates and learning about letter-writing in the process.
