About The Power of Poetry In You

During THE POWER OF POETRY IN YOU , award-winning author and performance artist Joy Jones will lead teen participants through several writing exercises that help them better understand the structure, language and other aspects of poetry. They also will be guided through a process that helps them realize how poetry is revealed in their own lives and history, enhancing their personal self-esteem and sense of self-worth while eliminating a barrier between them and one of the oldest literary art forms in the world.
