Writers Theatre of New Jersey, in partnership with the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, offer Poetry Out Loud In-School Residencies. Professional poets and performing artists will work with students and classroom teachers on a curriculum designed to enhance the understanding and appreciation of poetry through performance.

The emphasis on performance skills makes these residencies a perfect component in a school’s preparation for a Poetry Out Loud Competition. Classroom teachers are encouraged to participate, and to look at the residency as a professional development opportunity.
