Poets Creating Conversation

Poets are asked to reflect on education in America, from public education to home school; k-12 to college; or the lessons that life drops on us. In the classroom, out of the classroom, or in the “real” world. The good, the bad or the ugly. Cautionary tales and inspirational stories.

February marks the second anniversary of Poets Creating Conversation. To celebrate, we’re going to return to where it all began – with Education in America. The first time around, our event followed the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL Appropriately, poets circled around guns and the conversation about guns in school settings, arming teachers, etc. There’s no guarantee, but perhaps this time around, we’re hoping that education returns to the center of our circle.
