Another day of national poetry month, means another prompt!
Maybe get outside, dust off the notebook, and enjoy the weather while you spread some light yourself?

Today I hosted my first digital read aloud to my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders.

This pandemic, and the way our leadership is responding to it, must not keep us down, must not make us fear, and must not stop us from believing in the power of a good story. "He considered fainting.
He deemed it the only reasonable response to the situation in which he found himself in, but then he remembered the words of the threadmaster: honor, courtesy, devotion, and bravery.
'I will be brave,' thought Despereaux.
How best for him to be brave?
He cleared his throat. He let go of his tail. He stood up straighter. 'Once upon a time,' he said out loud to the darkness. He said these words because they were the best, most powerful words that he knew and just saying them comforted him."
- The Tale of Despereaux

Happy National Poetry Month!
We have decided to try (we use that word loosely) to supply you all with writing prompts every day this month as a way to #CureThroughCommunity. If you use the prompt, tag us in your story, or post it online using the hashtag, and we will share some of our favorites.
We can not wait to see what you all create!
P.s. this might be a great idea for even those that do not consider themselves “creatives”. You got this!

Big shout-out to @eightwest8 for highlighting a few stories that really bring joy during a time that feels so heavy.
This greenhouse will be certainly getting our business after this pandemic ends.

This year we did a whole lot of listening, learning, and growing together.
But these students that took the stage for their final performance was absolutely one of our favorite memories of the year!
We see you @kvillerockets
We look forward to rocking with some of these students over the summer, and to the community hearing many of these dynamic young people in the future. 📷 : @zmbiephrsh

Our students are at the heart of our work. Regina (@reginaaaaaa.16 ) has been a part of our programming for the past few years, and we've watched her grow before our eyes into a fierce young poet. We want to shower her with love because we recently got the news she's been accepted into a prestigious program at @interlochenarts academy!!! Congratulations Regina! You are deserving of every blessing in your life. Watch out for the next generation of creatives, y'all, I promise you'll be hearing about her in the future! ...

Society programs people into believing that it is normal to dislike what they do, that work isn’t enjoyable, and that successful dreamers are one in a million.
We live to shatter that false narrative, and manifest thoughts into becoming things.
News link in bio!

The Grand Showcase is Nov 23. Come dream with us!

As a local nonprofit, we have a lot of amazing people who help us along the way. Megan Jovano-Smith is one of those people! She has been a long time supporter of the arts community, and a long time non profit professional turned independent contractor and grant-writer-for-hire for us! We are endlessly thankful to her for being such a dynamic member of the community, and for using her skills to help our organization grow. Thank you, Megan!

I feel pure joy all over me every time I get the opportunity to work with young people. The students at Southwest Community Campus are so creative, courageous and inspiring. They flexed their poetic muscles during their final performance at the end of our 6 weeks of the_diatribe programming, in front of their ENTIRE SCHOOL! I love my life #kydsaidit #MyDiatribe #UniteThroughDiatribe 📷:zmbiephrsh ...

Standing in front of nearly 1,000 students reminiscing about the first time I took the stage.
I was in high school, I was terrified, but I never would have guessed that I would be working with students one day preparing them to read for their entire school.
This year I met so many young people that can and will change the world, they will go so much farther than me, and I’m SO excited to watch them continue to soar. 📷 zmbiephrsh

“Poems are the way that we show our expressions, how we rose from concrete and our sorrows and depressions”
When you get videos like this from school principals, it makes everything worth it!

Taking the prompt from the_diatribe for #nationalpoetrymonth. Directions were to take a selfie and write about yourself using loving and positive language.

More hair on my head than there could be by now
Every grey earned through experience and grit
A wisdom in my eyes that did not show in photos from my youth
A little redness, ever present, reminds that blood is still flowing
My heart may have tried to stop the flow, it was tired
But my soul was stronger and held on to life
In the end it’s unknown how this journey will end
But those who walk beside me make all the difference

Nobody told me how much I’d miss students after the weeks of programming ends! We worked with some incredible young people over at Crossroads. I find myself wanting to hear more poetry from them! Setting the intention for them to participate in the the_diatribe summer program! #kydsaidit #mydiatribe #unitethroughdiatribe #ListenLearnGrowTogether 📸: zmbiephrsh ...
