Poetry, Youth, and Accomplishment: Poetic Youth and Poetry International Event of Poetry for Youths

Poetic Youth and SDSU’s Poetry International is hosting a free poetry reading tomorrow Friday, December 5, 2014 at 6pm.

Poetic Youth is a recently unleashed program affiliated with SDSU that aims is to offer free poetry workshops to under-served communities in San Diego. The program is led by SDSU graduate and undergraduate students, and held in collaboration with Dr. Ilya Kaminsky and Jenny Minniti-Shippey, Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor for PoetryInternational.

This is not just any poetry event; this one involves students and youth from Hoover High School, San Diego Global Vision Academy, Monarch School, Sudanese American Youth Center and the Ubuntu Poetry Project reading poetry and demonstrating the positive effects of poetry in youth of under-served or under-represented communities. It’s also a great way to show support to those leading the program, for all their hard work and bringing artistic forms such as poetry to young people who may never have been exposed to it otherwise.

This event is open to the public and complimentary refreshments will be served. 
Chapbooks of students’ work will also be available for purchase.
