With the grant money that we received from Penguin Random House's First Annual Maya Angelou Poetry Award, we will be collecting, encouraging, and editing student poetry around the spirit of Maya Angelou's strength. Creative Writing students will encourage peers to write and submit poetry and meet with promising poets to edit and put together a collection of our school's best poems. In April, National Poetry Month, there will be an all day poetry coffeehouse event, including workshops and keynote speakers, where the students will share their publication with the entire school.
“When we come to it
We must confess that we are the possible
We are the miraculous, the true wonder of this world
That is when, and only when
We come to it. “ -- “A Brave And Startling Truth” by Maya Angelou
