Introducing Robbie Q. Telfer & Jamila Woods!
Franny, Phil, & Sarah welcome
new poets to the Project VOICE team!
“Project VOICE is the best thing that has happened, school-wide, on our campus this year. Their ability to connect with the students of our school is nearly unparalleled. The result of their work was nothing short of eternal gratitude from both students and staff. Our school will be changed because of them; I wish we could keep them.”
“Franny Choi’s verve, energy, and enthusiasm permeated the room as she showed the students new ways to experience language and demonstrated new techniques for expression. Sure, it was focused on poetry, but there was so much more to be learned about creativity, voice, confidence, and experimentation. It was awesome.”
“[The Project VOICE poets] are indeed extraordinarily talented performers and gifted educators. But what recommends them most strongly is something even more valuable than that. They are the kinds of young people that we as educators would most like our students to become: thoughtful, talented, passionate, engaged, dedicated, joyful, appreciative.”
“Fresh and Refreshing! Project VOICE entered our school as virtual strangers and after spending a day and a half with us, they left as beloved members of our community. They were able to relevantly appeal to 3 distinct audiences: middle school students, teachers, and parents – no easy feat.”
“Project VOICE was one of my favorite events of this year. I was so glad the workshop focused on techniques on how to inspire/motivate yourself – anyone who’s ever written knows how vital it is to know a few tricks to pull one’s self out of a slump! I’m genuinely looking forward to them possibly returning next year. Absolutely great.”
