Our Statewide Student Day of Poetry has been broke up into five regional events for 2015. You are now perusing the LOWELL event! 

On Thursday, December 10, Mass Poetry’s Student Day of Poetry is taking over UMass Lowell! SDOP features a morning poetry sampler, writing-generative workshops, performances, readings, and a student open mic. We’ve got something for everyone, from the student who isn’t even sure they like poetry to the senior leading the after-school poetry club.

Snakes Fight in the Spring

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

He is of the jungle, but he is not of the jungle.

Through Kipling’s poetry and our own written expression, we will speak of our own identities as they defy the borders that cannot contain us.
