I Run & My Shadow Runs Too
Young Audiences Teaching Artist and poet Brennan DeFrisco worked with third and fourth grade students at Wren Avenue Elementary to compose original poems. This anthology features two poems written by each student. Students selected their favorite poems they'd written and participated in a one-on-one editing session with Brennan during their final workshop to ensure they were happy with the poem, its layout, editorial changes, etc.
Copies of this anthology were printed and given to each student contributor, classroom teacher and administrator. We hope you enjoy this collection of poetry that showcases young people's voices in a remarkably authentic and engaging way.
