|Words Unlocked Poetry Initiative Open to Incarcerated Youth
March 25, 2015
In observance of April as National Poetry Month, the Center for Educational Excellence in Alternative Settings invites youth held in secure facilities to participate in its nationwide Words Unlocked poetry initiative and contest. This year's theme of “Transformation!” encourages youth to share poetry describing transformations that they have experienced, hope to experience, or fear they may experience. Free online resources for this month-long program include daily lesson plans, classroom materials, and contest guidelines.
