Bring Poets to Your Classroom!

This year we have a team of Poetry Teaching Artists available to lead poetry workshops and spread the love of poetry in classrooms around New Orleans. With the Pizza Poets’ guidance, students will produce stellar poems to be sent out on Pizza Poetry Day.

Teachers are welcome to add learning points and participate in the lesson. Our Poetry Teaching Artists will be leading the workshops and have some classroom management skills, however it is up to the teacher maintain an environment conducive to poetry while the poet is leading the lesson.

Requests to bring a poet to your classroom are now closed for 2017. Click here to learn how to submit poetry, and check back next year to bring a poet to your classroom!
