Elementary School Poetry Workshop – Odes: Poems of Praise

April 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Elementary school-aged students across Kalamazoo County are invited to join us for a Saturday morning of sharing our love, joy, and praise in the form of ODES!

Students will learn more about this poetic form, read a book about the power of sharing our poetry and praise, and dive into writing odes for the people, places, and things that we love.

As always, this RAWK workshop is FREE and open to all residents of Kalamazoo County.
This workshop will be VIRTUAL to assure the safety of all participants and their families.
