Why Poetry- 

I LOVE poetry. Just like many other art forms, poetry is another form of expression. It allows an artist an outlet to express their thoughts and feelings which is extremely important especially for children and youth who may often times feel unseen, unheard or as though no one understands them. 

The poetry community is so supportive and I find poetry (all art) extremely therapeutic. Putting your words, your thoughts, your feelings on paper is so brave; but then to also share your art with others, is when healing, self-discovery and self-empowerment begins. 

When we share our art, it lets us know that we are not alone. Storytelling/shared experiences brings us together. And the technology advances world we now live in; we all need something that makes us feel connected. Art can do that. Poetry can do that.
