The Poetry Posts Project:
Posters of poems written by Lane County youth sent to all Lane County public schools, three times a year for ten years!
Schools not only prominently posted the poetry posters, written by school-aged Lane County poets, but also had a student, teacher or principal read them over the intercom.
YWA teaching writers, with the teen and kid writers they mentored, partnered the poems with a published poem on a similar theme. They added questions to ask the poems in order to get to know them a little better and to inspire fresh writing.
The full ten year project is available in book form to project participants. Please contact YWA (see footer below) if you did not receive your copy.
