SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND
By Teens and Their Mentors
"Writing a poem a day is difficult.
But if the world can start from scratch daily,
how hard is it to notice?" (JUDYTH HILL)
"My students are EXCITED about poetry, but not only that, they are involved intrinsically with the writing life. It has become a part of their lives, a part of their days. They are seeking audiences, on the Internet, and in the community." (MICHELLE HOLLAND, Poet and Teacher, Chimayó, New Mexico
