Poetry Out Loud


Lend your ears to Waynflete students as they don black berets and recite their poems with fearless wit and candor!

Friday, December 1 (First Friday Art Walk)
Poetry Out Loud Readings, 6:00 p.m.

Poetry Out Loud is a nation-wide competition that celebrates poetry in its original form: recitation. Students across the country read and analyze poems from an anthology, then select a poem that they are moved to share with an audience. In the course of studying, memorizing, and practicing the recitation of their selected poem, students work with Waynflete Performing Arts teachers Tiki Fuhro on breathing techniques, making an emotional connection, and using their whole body in their recitation.
