Poetry Lives Here
Fairfax Poet Laureate Nicole Tong wants to connect the community with poetry with her project Poetry Lives Here. Poetry expresses feelings, reflects the world around us, and connects our community. Poetry triggers our brain and our emotions and provides us with a space for self-reflection. The Poetry Lives Here project aims to amplify the voices of living poets. Engaging and learning with living poets provides students of all ages with relatable content to analyze and discuss. More importantly, it reminds us that we are creative artists and poetry lives in each of us. Follow Nicole and her living poets project on Twitter @PoetryLivesHere.
