September means Back to School for Maryland students, so this month’s Poe & Poets event is just for kids! This Sunday starting at 2PM, students 10 and older are invited to participate in a special reading and poetry-writing activity at Poe House. Activity and discussion will be led by Poe House Director, Enrica Jang.
Students will participate in a group reading of two Poe poems, “To Helen” and “The Bells”. The reading will be followed by a writing activity where students will learn about two types of form in some of Poe’s most famous poetry. Older students will get to compose their own pieces in a take-home journal. Younger students will learn about acrostic poems, and have a chance to decorate their new pieces in take-home frames.
Space and supplies are limited so please RSVP and arrive just before 2PM. Let us know you’ll join here on Facebook! This event is included with the price of admission to Poe House.
