We here at The Unquiet Library had the pleasure of enjoying two whole days of poetry writing workshops with Kelly Bingham, acclaimed author of Shark Girl. Ms. Bingham worked with 9th and 10th graders both days and helped our students explore simple but effective strategies for writing poetry. Students were able to participate in hands-on and interactive writing activities to hone their poetry writing techniques. The workshops focused on the use of imagery, word choice, and description for creating effective and memorable poems. The workshops were sponsored by The Unquiet Library as part of our celebration of National Poetry Month.
We would like to thank Ms. Bingham for her time and sharing of her writing wisdom with all of us here at CRHS!
