We believe in poetry for the people. Poetry is not something reserved for a few. It is part of our everyday lives, whether we know it or not. In the beginning there was no such thing as poetry without song. Every time you listen to a song, think of an old nursery rhyme, look at something beautiful or open your mouth you are a witness to it. Emerson said “Every word was once a poem.” We want to teach poetry in such a way that everyone from absolute beginner to accomplished writer can benefit. We believe in the power of poetry to connect us and to heal our souls.
