Maine Writes is a 10-week residency focused on developing and performing poetry that culminates in a poetry slam. Each residency involves an L/A Arts professional teaching artist collaborating with a classroom teacher to plan, develop, and implement programming for the classroom teacher’s students. Lessons and activities focus on using poetic concepts and forms to develop poems and then performing those poems effectively for others. The residencies culminate in a celebratory poetry slam in March/April between the various participating classes.
