Poetry in the Schools

poetry-in-schools-cover-web
PDF of “Poems”

During the 1975-76 school year, university students in the creative writing program at the University of Arkansas taught elementary and secondary students across the state about poetry and various approaches to writing poems. The outreach program was known at Poetry in the Schools, or PITS for short.

From the writing, several poems from each school were chosen for publication, including more than a dozen written by seniors in the Class of 76. The attached PDF only contains the forward, introduction and poetry from FHS and the PitStop School in Fayetteville.

Today, the program is known as Writers in the Schools, or WITS, and continues to foster creative writing in schools across the state.
