The Poetry Lady Visits Schools
Give your students a chance to learn how much fun it is to write poetry and meet a real, live poet, too. The Poetry Lady, Denise Rodgers, will come to your school and get everyone excited about reading and writing poetry.



Poetry Workshops
This is perfect for upper elementary students. Students will enjoy a poetry reading and a skit before they launch into their poetry-writing experience. Using themes from her “Great Lakes Rhythm & Rhyme” book, The Poetry Lady will lead the group in writing a poem which will be published on this web site in the Kids' Poetry section. Students will also be encouraged to email their individual poems to the site so they can be included on the same page as their school's group poem.

If you have questions, send an email to Denise Rodgers at drodgers@thepoetrylady.com or call Creative Writing Press Inc. at
1-800-760-6397.
