CPC Partners with Pulitzer Center for Student Poetry

This spring we partnered with the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting to offer our Chicago students additional workshops, and a chance to link up with a national poetry competition that engages students with global issues important to them.

Check out this post from the Pulitzer Center, and some photos of our students in action, below! Featuring students from our residencies at Sir Miles Davis Magnet Academy in Englewood, in Ms. Yadeale Tamru’s classroom.



“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.
