Tapestry of Faith: Exploring Our Values Through Poetry: A Program for High School Youth

Leader Reflection and Planning

With your co-leader, discuss which activities were successful and which ones were less so. The date, time, and location of the Poetry Slam should be set by now. Start thinking about publicity outlets, especially congregational newsletters that might be printed a month in advance. If advance publicity is needed before Workshop 12, Poems On Stage, will be offered, let the group know. The quickest way to get word out about the Poetry Slam is to get permission from the group for co-leaders to write a short blurb for advance publicity. You might discover that a youth or two is interested in working with you and is able to do so at an agreed-upon time outside of regular meeting time.
