Reap the many benefits of participation in the national Poetry Out Loud contest with events and practices at your school that not only prepare your students to compete effectively, but help your students to begin a lifetime of loving and understanding poetry. With real-life demonstration and anecdotes, our team of presenters will introduce you to our school’s best practices and most substantive experiences, including our school-wide Poetry Festival, smaller ‘poetry liturgies’ attached to specific classes and our lunch-time faculty coaching sessions.
