Teen Poems Behind Bars–New Poems Posted

on June 22, 2012

A few weeks ago, I taught a poetry writing and YA literature workshop at Denney Juvenile Justice Center. The focus of the workshop was the Hero’s Journey, and our writing included topics such as: monster, mentors, and open doors.

You can read about that workshop and see some of the lesson ideas here.

In order for the teen’s poems to be published on their blog, Teen Poems Behind Bars , we must obtain release forms. Something which is not always easy to do and takes the detention staff using a lot of persistence to track down parents to sign the forms. Some of those release forms are starting to trickle in and I’ve posted three new poems on the Teen Poems Behind Bars Blog
