Upcoming Broadcasts

Join co-directors and teacher-consultants from the Columbus Area Writing Project for a discussion on their work with the Children's Poetry StoryBox Project . Working alongside former children's poet laureate, J. Patrick Lewis, Kevin Cordi, a co-director for the Columbus Area Writing Project, will share what happened when primarily elementary-age students and their teachers were provided a collection of unfinished poems by famous children poets and asked to finish writing them. The poems were then put in a "StoryBox" that traveled across the nation by mail. Find out how you can become involved in this international work and learn from the "Story Ambassadors" who organized the project.
