FHS Poetry Club
Purpose of Club: To create a safe haven where creative, poetic souls can find one another and weave words together.
Description of Club: Avid readers and aspiring writers of poetry and fiction gather every Tuesday afternoon in Room 113 for informal 30-minute meetings at which we workshop our original writing, peruse pieces by famous authors, and feast on sweets. There are no dues or financial obligations for members, so if you love reading and writing, join us!
Number of Students Participating: Last year we had around 25 students in the club, with between 10 and 15 hardcore regulars.
Events the Club Sponsors: In January, we hold a pizza party for all students in the school willing to contribute a poem to the club. In March, we release the yearly FHS poetry journal. In May, we attend the Massachusetts Poetry Festival. Some of our members participate in the Poetry Out Loud competition every January.
