The Regal House Initiative’s We 2 R Poets Program
The Regal House Initiative, Regal House Publishing’s nonprofit arm, will be partnering with Wake County schools to bring a poetry workshop to elementary children. RHI will then publish a collection of the children’s original poems under our Fitzroy Books imprint in a collection that will be subsequently donated to each participating school.
The RHI team feel strongly that by encouraging children to find joy and merit in poetry, we are sharing with them one of the keys to learning and achieving whatever goals they set for themselves:
You can work hard, have fun, learn new things, and be creative—ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Leading young writers and readers through the WE2R POETS workshop, we will teach them some of the basic craft elements of poetry, show them how to use their environments and experiences for creative writing assignments, prove that working together with friends can be one of the most fun ways to learn, and provide them with their own library copy of a professionally published collection of poems of their own composition.
