Spring for Poetry 2016

By Isabelle Gilet

logo_pdp.pngOpen to all the students from 1st to 8th graders, “Spring for Poetry” is an annual event held in many schools and cultural centers in France and all around the world in the Spring. Each year in France, many schools celebrate poetry by organizing several workshops that engage students : a poetry contest, a poem as a gift (a student offers a poem s/he has written to another student), a Poetry writer’s workshop. This year, the 18th “Spring for Poetry” will take place at SDFAS from March 7th to March 20th. During this event, SDFAS students will have the opportunity to read the poems of Apollinaire, Supervielle, Cendrars, Saint John Perse, Eluard, Breton, Aragon, Michaux, Ponge, Prévert, Queneau, and Char, to mention just a few. Poetry will provide students with a beautiful medium to share their emotions.
