Come together with other boys and girls 3rd grade and up to learn the five voice energies of poetry. Watch your writing come alive and enhance all forms of expression. With Jennie as your gentle guide, explore life themes through writing poetry in a supportive group environment. Jennie encourages listening without judgment and offers a safe space for kids of all writing levels to express themselves.

 

Five Voice Energies in the Poetry Toolbox:

Surreal
To Be Read and Sung
Teeth and Mouth
Deep Voice
Straight Talk

 

What I like about being in the kids group is how we get to share things freely. I normally don’t like writing, but in Jennie’s writing group I do.  — Jay, 5th grade

Jennie teaches like nothing I have ever seen.  You will be amazed at how she launches poetry writing with our students. — Karen Farris, Writing Workshop Leader, 3rd grade, MBUSD

Jennie’s gentle energy creates a safe haven in which my 3rd graders can write with their hearts.  As one of my students stated, she inspires them to 'reach into our souls and write what is important inside of us.'  — Nancy Robertson, Grand View Elementary School
