Spring & Fountain Online: bringing mindfulness, creativity and (of course) poetry into your daily life.
In the traditional Spring & Fountain program, teachers throughout New Jersey meet in person once a week for 3 to 6 weeks. Guided by an experienced poet, the members of the group read poems aloud to each other, practice listening, and engage in discussion about the poems.
Spring & Fountain Online brings this program to educators and students of poetry nationwide, from the comfort of their own homes and on their schedules, for free. For one week, from April 22-29, participants will receive a daily e-mail to help them incorporate poetry into their lives. Over the course of the week, these e-mails will include:
- A “Giving Voice” packet of contemporary poetry
- Suggestions for daily activities (including journal prompts and writing activities)
- Videos of poets reading their work
- Access to a Google Group where participants can communicate and connect about their experiences
