After participating in the Massachusetts teen poetry slam Louder Than a Bomb last year, the members of Poetic Ramblings experienced the benefits of sharing their voice, and of working in an artist community. Being exposed to a new, relevant art form and being recognized as scholar artists was a truly amazing experience. It had such an impact on us that we are sharing our enthusiasm for the program with students from neighboring schools.
On December 1st, BHS will host its first Regional Student Day of Poetry in an effort to develop relationships with neighboring schools while spreading some poetry love. The event will allow students from BHS, Arlington High School, and Billerica High School to attend writing workshops, watch slam poets from MassLEAP perform, and contribute to (or observe) a student open mic session.
We are so excited for this event. Any BHS student interested in attending the writing workshops should see Mrs. Janovitz or Ms. Graham for a permission slip.
