THE BLIMP IS BACK! Announcing the Magical Poetry Blimp Pilot’s Guide #2! In this new Guide, The Blimp will be time-traveling to other centuries and other cultures to meet famous poets from the past!
The new Magical Poetry Blimp Pilot’s Guide is a brand new poetry handbook for students and teachers—and for anyone who loves poetry. In this new edition, each chapter’s been written by a different young writer. Some are undergraduate poets at the University of Southern California, one is an inner-city poet and rapper (from East L.A. College and Get Lit: Words Ignite!), two are high school students (one from L.A. and one from San Francisco) and there is a young eco-poetry activist from Oakland!
Evermore is squawking and waving to us—calling everyone to hurry aboard! So set your watches and computers for Imagination Time—HERE WE GO!
The Magical Poetry Blimp is a source of “pro-active poetry,” a dramatic approach to the teaching of poetry in the classroom and in the community.
The Blimp is a vehicle for the imagination — techniques for learning and loving poems (on-line and in The Magical Poetry Blimp Pilot’s Guide, a handbook for poetry bus riders and drivers). The Magical Poetry Blimp is the official project of Carol Muske-Dukes, as former Poet Laureate of the state of California — though the Blimp, in partnership with Get Lit and the Get Lit Players, reaches audiences throughout the state of California — and beyond!
