Friday, Apr. 23: Classes at Richland Northeast High in Columbia, SC
What a pleasure it was yesterday to meet with young poets in Barbara Thomson's classes at Richland Northeast High. We circled up and read a number of poems rich with concrete details--list poems, poems of advice/instruction, poems in the voice of an inanimate object, and others. Then we spent time writing lines of a group poem, plus poems of our own. A talented group!
