One of the world's foremost writing teachers invites readers on a joyful journey into the reading and origins of haiku
Poetry, like all art, feels more and more essential as the weeks of change stretch on. We're pleased to present Poetry From The Peninsula as a balm in these unusual times. With support from the Foothills Writers Series at Peninsula College, we reached out to a number of local poets, asking them to read works that have meaning for them in these challenging times. Our hope is that you can find meaning, familiarity, and maybe even humor in these poems. New readings will be posted here as they come available. Enjoy!
Welcome to our weekly(ish) reading of short picture books, board books, and occasional guest readers. Is there a story you'd like to see read aloud? We'd love your feedback! These videos are first available on Facebook.
