Role Reversal for Dr. Nash

Dr. Roger Nash, Sudbury's Poet Laureate, helps student Cassandra Rees perform and dramatize her own work done in Ms Dumont's creative writing class.

June 27, 2011 - St. Benedict students have been busy in Ms Dumont’s creative writing class after being inspired by Dr. Roger Nash’s poetry workshop at the school last April. Grade 12 student Emma Erikson said “his performance of a poem about a cricket was intriguing”. During a return visit to St. Ben’s this week, students performed a dramatic presentation of their own poetry for Dr. Nash. After each student’s enactment, Dr. Nash gave helpful suggestions such as including gestures, or props and people in their delivery. He stated he “enjoys working with young people, and that it is always good for students to experience poetry beyond the usual study of literature”.
