As dedicated educators, they work to bring poetry into classrooms and communities around the world.
From the Artists:
“Our favorite part of the holidays is sharing poetry, art, and stories with the people we love. While this holiday season may look a bit different than years past, and we may not be able to gather or celebrate the way we are used to, we wanted to welcome you into our homes and share some of our poems virtually. These poems are about togetherness, growing up, and home—some of what is on our mind this time of year. We hope these poems might be a catalyst for conversation with your loved ones about childhood memories, family, and poetry, whether in person or from afar!“ —Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye, Project VOICE Co-Directors
