Geof Hewitt, author of 4 books of poems and Vermont's reigning poetry slam champion, offers readings of his poems, serves as slammaster/host for school and community-wide poetry slams, and leads writing workshops for all ages above third grade. In writing workshops, Geof uses brief writing exercises to stimulate imaginations and get pencils moving. Students who volunteer to read their work aloud provide an opportunity for noting public-speaking strategies and skills. Listening is also emphasized and, if the circumstances allow, a poetry slam can serve as the culminating activity. References happily supplied. Listed fees (below) are per-day and negotiable.
