Clear and easy poetic structures and formats empower students to expand their imaginations and to cross creative boundaries. This workshop is based on the belief that poetry, in addition to being written and read, should be performed. Teachers learn ways to help students use brainstorming, imagery, and layering to write powerful and effective poems.
This workshop is most valuable for teachers of grades 5-8.
This workshop is presented by Kennedy Center Teaching Artist Glenis Redmond, an award-winning performance poet, praise poet, educator, and writer from North Carolina. For the past thirteen years, she has traveled both domestically and abroad carrying the message of poetry to the masses. She has been published in Meridians, Heartstone, Black Arts Quarterly, Obsidian II: Black Literature in Review, Emrys Journal, Bum Rush the Page: Def Poetry Jam, and Poetry Slam: The Competitive Art of Performance. Her work will appear in the upcoming Fem Spec and Appalachian Heritage Journals. Glenis was a recipient of a Vermont Writing Center Fellowship granted by the William Matthews Estate, 2002, as well as the 2005 North Carolina Literary Fellowship.
Attending this workshop provides 3 contact hours towards CEU credit, and dinner is included.
