NPM2023: "Game On!"
Happy National Poetry Month! Throughout April, I'll be sharing videos made by my graduate students enrolled in a "Poetry for Children and Young Adults" course at Texas Woman's University.
I put a call out to my poet friends to donate a poem and give permission for these students to create an original "movie" to feature that poem.
These are great to have on had for small "Poetry Break" as well as being a model of how poetry and technology can go together. Today and tomorrow are two poems about basketball, fitting as this the weekend for the "Final Four." Today, please enjoy "Game On" by Karen Elise Finch.

This project is terrific, Jone, and a huge thanks to your students! I loved the way the poem is presented in this first one, the photography and music.
