Join us for our end of the year Hands On Stanzas celebration! One student poet from each Hands On Stanzas residency classroom will perform an original poem written during their 2014-15 residency. Poets big and small, ages 7 – 16 will perform in the beautiful Claudia Cassidy Theater of the Chicago Cultural Center.

Celebrate the end of a school year and the end of a successful Indiegogo campaign! Head over to the campaign page to see our student poets talk about why poetry is important to them.

-Oscar S.

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

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
