Hands on Stanzas has been an arts partner to Chicago schools for twenty years. Our teaching artists (Poets in Residence) are active Chicago poets with teaching experience. Poets in Residence are paired with a school to conduct a 10 - 20 session residency, which can range from October – May, or occur over a shorter time period during the academic year. Poets read, discuss, and write poetry with their students in every session. Students perform poems in class, and additional performance opportunities at cultural venues across Chicago occur throughout the year. Poets in Residence publish student poems weekly at poetrycenter.org
