In this workshop for students, we will use poetry to respond to current events, make personal connections to global issues, and make our voices heard. Poems crafted in this workshop can be entered into the 2021 Fighting Words Poetry Contest for the chance to win cash prizes and publication. Find complete contest guidelines here. The workshop will be led by Hannah Berk, Pulitzer Center education manager.

While this workshop is open to all grade levels, it is designed for middle and high school students. Teachers and parents/guardians are encouraged to join as well.
