Burke HS poetry club
November 9, 2017
Burke High School teacher Kaitlyn Mindel reached out to me because she leads a spoken word poetry club at the school. They meet weekly and have been planning to do a slam at the school. I recently visited and was BLOWN AWAY by their talent and skill.
I’m going to work my hardest to amplify their voices: publish a book of their poems and put on an event that showcases their talent. It’s important to me that young poets realize the VALUE in poetry and the POWER of their voices.
