Verandah offers unique poetry workshops and residencies, by the day, week, or month, for students of all ages—elementary to Elderhostel.
Each workshop and residency is planned with each host. Verandah understands the challenges schools face, from 30 years of working closely with students and teachers.
Residencies open with a lively interactive performance featuring Verandah's work, poetic forms she's invented or adapted, wordplay and whimsy. Residencies close with a culminating event or exhibition.
In residencies, Verandah
"Verandah shares her pleasure with classes. She presents complex ideas so that students can grasp them. She honors each individual effort. She bonds with teachers and enhances their skills. I wish every child could work with her."
