Rural Youth Action Team

On this past Wednesday Mrs. Brown, Alani, and myself attended a meeting at the University of Salkehatchie. During this meeting we discussed our plans for our upcoming project. As you all may know, we intend to help our younger South Carolinians with their schoolwork. We plan to tutor grades 3-6 once we have the approval from the principals. At the meeting we had the opportunity to read a piece of Amaryllis’s writing. This poem had everyone’s attention. IT WAS SO GOOD!!!!


Just made this post to keep you all informed on what us South Carolinians were up to.

    Hi Sameia, Exciting news that you’ll be working with the little ones! See if they will allow you to write and share some simple poetry with them. If you do that, you’ll see how quickly you can build a little literary community. I have some very easy prompts I could share that work with little kids and big ones. Keep up the great work!

    Dear Sameia and Alani,
    Thank you for sharing poetry and time with your community. As ABL has demonstrated, we can change the world one poem at a time, one poet at a time. The youth you will be helping, pending principal approval. I hope they agree.
    Please let us know how your efforts continue. Also, how are you all doing yourselves? Is there any way this network can assist you?
