I heard about this program today and wanted to share, as it involves poetry. Do I like poetry? Do you? Hellllo! (I furiously nod)
My Resource Cloud explains about the event, titled “All In The Rhythm”. Two professional poets are working on methods to strengthen literacy among young people. The tool used is creativity! The results will be poems written by the youth.
Wait, it gets better.
How about the program combines poetry with music? I know my friend Cat will be excited about this one. Are you too? (I furiously nod)
The young people will be able to take their creative poems to a recording facility to mix the poetic words with rap music. While I want to write here that I would have been stoked for this opportunity in my youth, I admit that I am also very fond of the idea in my 30’s today!
The two poets who will form a vital role in “All In The Rhythm” are Daniela Hoche and Christopher D. Sims.
Below is a YouTube! video about Christopher D. Sims. I also post the link to the Resource Cloud article which includes more details about the program and the poets.
