Athenian Teen Poets 5pm Free
The Athenian School presents teen poets!
Please join us to hear several high school teen poets read their own powerful, original poems. These junior and senior students have been studying modernist and contemporary poets such as Eliot, Plath, Rich, Zamora, and Lorde in a poetry seminar at The Athenian School in the East Bay. Their course work has evolved through their examination of several essential questions: What is poetry, and how does the genre often serve as a superior canvas poets use to express themes regarding time, loss, and identity? In what ways can poets use fragmentation and other forms to render meaning in poems? Come hear what answers, and further questions, these young poets have raised as we celebrate their work!
