Poetry: The Art of Getting Messy (For Teens!)


Poetry: The Art of Getting Messy (For Teens!)


Have you ever seen a painter's jeans? Usually it's splattered in specks of gold and white and rouge--all evidence of the artist letting go and getting just a bit messy. Sometimes we don't allow ourselves to get messy enough in our poems, though. Together we will explore what it means to write the messy thing, read/hear some poetic examples and then follow some prompts to create new messy work.
