At this school visit, we had a blast talking to elementary students about poetry and typewriters.
We talked about creativity, spontaneity, and being bold and making mistakes.
Then we took some suggestions from the students and typed on-the-spot poems — their hilarious topics ranged from a rabbit undergoing kneecap surgery to a dog named “Ishkabibble.”
We also had time to let them give each other poem topics and write some poems on the spot. A few brave students shared them with the whole group.
Thank you, friends at Pillow Elementary!
