Poetry Club

Description

The Bloomington Junior High School Poetry Club is an ongoing collaboration between BJHS teachers Suzanna Hutton and Greg Kocourek and the Publications Unit staff and students. The Club meets weekly during the school year over the lunch hour and focuses on the writing and appreciation of poetry. It includes workshops on writing and performing poetry, as well as learning how to create do-it-yourself handmade poetry chapbooks. The Publications Unit staff and interns also seek out publishing opportunities and contests for young writers.
