For a second year, we are offering a week-long workshop for writers in high school to create and explore poetry in one of the largest poetry libraries in the country. Led by Dave Johnson, young writers will delve into the art and craft of poetry in a fun, creative and inspiring environment. The workshop ends with a public reading at Poets House.
