Almost Summertime…

Edit, revise, edit revise! Poems take time and we don’t always have enough of it, especially as we’re nearing the end of our time together at Simpson. Between field trips, testing, and getting ready for summer, we have to make sure we create a little extra time to polish and shine our poems to a gleam. Today the young women of Simpson got to work typing up poems from all their hand written first drafts, and working on pieces that needed a little more time and attention. We’ll be posting more pieces in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!



“Writing poetry makes me feel like I can see myself, like I can see my reflection, but not in a mirror, in the world. I write and I know I can be reflected.”
-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
-Jessica M.
