The objective of the poetry club is to expose members to multiple kinds of writing techniques, specifically within poetry, as well as to experience how other people write poetry and to appreciate how a single prompt can result in a wide array of responses. The club meets every Wednesday at lunch. Everyone reads aloud what they have written since the last meeting in response to the chosen prompt. The club serves to celebrate writing, encourage students to cultivate their writing skills, and be comfortable with sharing their work.
