“Your voice, your choice. It’s you” Poetry Books with South Loop Poetry Club!

For our last week of South Loop Poetry Club, our talented poets continued to work on and finish our individual poetry books. Some students revised and reminisced on old poems we wrote in class, other wrote completely new piece for our collection, while others brought in their favorites and classics to reference! Before we left, we shared out some poetry one last time and had readings of all kinds of poems. Thank you South Loop for a wonderful residency. May you all carry poetry with you into your futures!
