Reading and writing poetry expands the boundaries of the imagination and intellect. Students who engage in writing poetry will develop confidence in their voice, strengthen their ability to communicate new ideas, and convey observations of their world. Crafting poetry has the potential to translate ideas where prose may at times seem daunting. Reading and writing poetry unlocks the power to inspire imagination with immediacy, intensity. Moving from reading and recognizing poetic ideas, to engaging in personal expression through writing, develops an awareness of the world at large. When students are encouraged to engage in the process of writing poetry, they will discover that some things can only be said through a great poem.
