Teen Poetry Workshop at the Everett Library

on June 28, 2012

I’ve been getting ready for the first in a series of summer workshops that I’m teaching. The first workshop is a teen poetry workshop at the Everett Library to be held on July 11. It’s open to grades 7-12, and takes places from 1-3:30 at the Everett Public Library downtown. The cost is $25. More details are posted below about the poetry workshop.

As a part of the workshop, I’ve made these cute chalkboards. I’ll either give each participant one of the chalkboards or will use them as giveaways during the workshop. They are perfect for writing poems!

It’s a simple project. You take a clipboard. Apply a couple coats of black chalkboard paint, and attach colored chalk to colorful ribbon. I added the words on the top of the clipboard to go along with the workshop.  The directions for making the chalkboards can be found here.
