Poet Angelo Geter Conducts Workshop with Wildcats

They wanted to make sure their lines added up to five, seven, and five. These students took part in a recent poetry workshop.

  Poet Angelo Geter visited Saluda Trail Middle School on October  23rd and conducted 2  sessions. During the workshop, about 30 students learned how to write Haiku poems and songs.

 “It was one of the best experiences I’ve had,”  said Casey Jones, a 7th grader. “It was pretty fun,”  she added. 

“It was the first poetry person I ever saw and it made me have a good day,” said Matthew Cuthbert, a 7th grader.  Amelia O’Sullivan, a 7th grader, said she enjoyed the experience. “I never experienced having somebody who makes poems come to a school,” she said. “I never thought it would be that fun.”
Geter currently serves as the Poet Laureate of Rock Hill, SC.  He is also the 2018 National Poetry Slam Champion. 

The workshops were Paid for by the Arts in Basic Curriculum Institute who receives funding from the South Carolina Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
