will also be invited to join our online Community space, where
Dodge Poetry members can connect with each other and engage in conversations
with and about poetry. We'll post discussion topics, and you can respond,
share which poems are your favorite and why, reflect on the day's activities
and prompts, and get to know each other.
Here are some reflections from participants who took part in our online program last year:
“I've always felt as if I couldn't understand the true meaning of a poem or I was always missing something. Being able to just be with poetry made me realize that while some poems come easily, sometimes it just takes a few more reads to understand. Reading poetry inspired me to dabble in my own and it boosted my creativity and my mood. Having this as a daily practice, especially during this time, was more impactful than I can put into words. I'm truly grateful for this program, as I feel it sparked something in me. Thank you!”
“I was never one to read poetry but after this experience, I look forward to reading more poems.”
“The staff of Dodge Poetry is brilliant in their understanding of poetry, poems, and the human mind and spirit. You lifted my week and reasserted the importance of poetry in my life and therefore in the lives of those around me with whom I share poems and the news of the poetry world. You have reinvigorated me in my job as a retired teacher to keep teaching what is important (poetry in life) to family, friends and my community.”
