This year’s theme, “Page is the Stage,” was created by ETHS students in LeTay Jervis’ English class. The theme is also illustrated by graphics created in ETHS visual arts classrooms. The button design is by ETHS junior Nicole Kezdy from Petra Maton’s cartooning class. The poster design is by ETHS junior Grace Fabbri from William Simos’ graphic design class.
ETHS teachers are also invited to sign up their classes for events held throughout Poetry Week. Featured presenters for 2017 Poetry Week will include:
Poetry Week will also include performances by the ETHS Poetic Justice team. The week culminates with an Open Mic session where students may read their poems or listen to poetry by their peers. ETHS Little Kits, preschool children of staff, kick off Open Mic with a poem they learned to recite. ETHS students are also offered a light lunch at Open Mic thanks to support from the Northwestern University Partnership Office.
