Poetry Out Loud online classes for students

Poetry Out Loud, a free national program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, encourages high school students across the country to learn about great works of classic and contemporary poetry through memorization and recitation. Not only do they share their interpretation and delivery of poetry; they also vie for awards and scholarships totaling $50,000.

If your school is unable to host a Poetry Out Loud program, your students can still participate in a weekly online class beginning Oct. 22, that introduces students to the art of poetry performance. For more information contact Cathy Roy, croy@mayoarts.org
