Laura Boss will be conducting workshops on Saturday, May 9th, with participants from all Spring & Fountain sessions. Laura will join other Dodge Poets for a day-long “poetry retreat” of readings, conversations and writing activities .
The day will also have as its featured poet is Patricia Smith, who was featured at the 2008 and 2012 Dodge Poetry Festivals and is a four-time National Poetry Slam Champion.
“Clearing the Spring, Tending the Fountain” gets its title from the understanding that, like the spring in Robert Frost’s “The Pasture,” the spring of our imaginative and creative centers requires tending. This can be particularly true for teachers with the increasing pressures put on them in these challenging times.
Since 1992, the Dodge Poetry Program has offered Spring & Fountain to New Jersey teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.
