Poet in the Classroom

Dawna Proudman, from The League of Canadian Poets, co-founded the Words Aloud Spoken Word Festival and the Highway 4 Writers' Group. In addition to writing and performing poetry, she has written scripts for stage and video, magazine articles, short stories, children's stories and a novella. Dawna recently spent a week visiting three Sudbury Catholic Schools sharing her poetry with students and encouraging fledgling writers to enjoy poetry.

November 18, 2008 - Thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Cara Soehner, St. Anne, Immaculate Conception and St. Mary Catholic Schools were able to enjoy having Dawna Proudman, a published poet from the League of Canadian Poets share her expertise with their students.

Ms. Proudman's presentation was both interactive and creative and thoroughly enjoyed by all students. Students were able to not only listen to Miss Proudmans' poetry, but also create their own poems throughout the day.
