The heart of the Dodge Poetry Festival,High School Student Day introduces thousands of teenagers to poets from widely diverse backgrounds, offering them the opportunity to see the world from perspectives entirely unlike their own. The poets on High School Student Day are extraordinary—not only in their talent as writers, but in their ability to communicate and connect with students. The atmosphere of the day is one of mutual respect and generosity.High School Student Day also meets Common Core State Standards.
High School Student Day offers a variety of simultaneous events, including readings, sessions, storytelling, musicians and discussions with over 50 poets, from our most celebrated to some of the most promising and engaging younger poets.
