Elementary students in Liberty City are getting lessons from a professional poet through the O, Miami poetry festival.
For four weeks students at Orchard Villa Elementary are getting a crash course in poetry from an actual poet.
“This is my first time knowing about poetry, and it is fun. And I get to write my own poetry stories and we could talk about our family,” said Kindra Oriental, a third grader.
Oriental is one of the students in the third grade class learning from poet Laurel Nakanishi.
