PHS 8th Grade's Poetry Writing Workshop with SF Poet Laureate, Tongo Eisen-Martin!

Earlier this week, we had a wonderful poetry writing workshop with current San Francisco Poet Laureate, Tongo Eisen-Martin (brother of PHS Alum, Biko Eisen-Martin '96). The 8th grade class met with Tongo in the library to discuss poetry, his themes, style, and more. Then, they wrote their own poems and were given the opportunity to present them during Tongo's middle school assembly to their teachers and peers. What a wonderful and powerful way for students to learn about what poetry can provide the writer and the listener.
