Through a unique, interactive language arts program, Conversations with Poets brings together incarcerated students with nationally recognized and published poets. The program is designed around reading and writing poetry, along with interactive video conversations with the featured poets. In anticipation of our conversations, the teacher introduces the poetry of the featured writer, identifying poetic elements as well as focusing on writing techniques, use of imagery, and stylistic qualities evident in the work of the featured writer. After reading and interacting with the poetry, students write from a model in the featured poet’s work. Examples from last year included writing personal narrative poetry, employing epigraphs in poems, incorporating literary and allegorical references in poems, language as topography, and utilizing the techniques of enjambment and bleeding titles in poetry. In 2018, we held our conversations during the National Poetry Month, April 2018. The experience was tremendously edifying for the students as they read their own poems to national recognized poets and received feedback and constructive suggestions. We would like to expand upon the program throughout the year and afford the students a much clearer conversation, utilizing professional video conferencing equipment. This grant will provide professional video conferencing equipment leveraging the activity into a year of additional video conferencing activities.
