Poetry Now Program

In order to promote the understanding and appreciation of poetry, our Poetry Now program provides educational materials and resources for use within classrooms, book clubs, or for individual usage.  Utilize our poetry lesson plans or poetry prompts.

 

Our  "Discussion Links" section provides expertly developed lesson plans that encourage analysis, reflection and discussion about poems published by Trio House Press as well as influential public domain works.  These plans can be reproduced for classroom and personal use without permission but are not permitted to be sold or redistributed in any form.

 

Our "Write It" section encourages the writing process by providing prompts and writing exercises developed in conjunction with our Trio House Press poetry and other influential public domain works. These prompts and exercises can be reproduced for classroom and personal use without permission but are not permitted to be sold or redistributed in any form.
