The 2010 WITS Writer Orientation featured special guests Michele Kotler and Keith Kaminski from the Community Word Project (CWP) in New York. Our friends at the CWP have given a great deal of thought to preparing writers to teach in classrooms. We at WITS Houston invited them down to see what it was all about. As you might guess, we were very impressed.
One of the cornerstones of CWP is creating poetry and art as a group. Michele and Keith led our writers in an exercise to help us produce a community performance. The process was fun and exciting. Have a listen?
