Hello my fellow poets, artists, and friends,
It seems a bit surreal to be starting up this website and actually launching Poeteen. It's a great feeling, but nonetheless an unexpected one. The more I work on this organization, the more I want to do with it. I have so many ideas fluttering around in my head, so many ways that I could expand this program to help more people, so many unwritten poems...
My idea is to use this blog on the home page as a way to update whomever is curious on the status of the program, how things are going, and to give them something to smile about every time they visit the page. I hope to do a weekly poem + art pairing on this blog to spark your inspiration. Once the program is actually in place, I'll be posting various links to gofundme's or hopefully an online publication of poems that our students will have created throughout the year.
I am so excited to begin this wild, wonderful journey. If you are interested in volunteering, please check out that page and/or contact me. Poetry waits to greet you, dear world!
Yours in poetry,
Founder of Poeteen
