The Poet Life Academy is a unique and exciting program that we provide to grade schools, various organizations, and to the community. It is our goal to encourage as many students as possible to use writing and poetry as an outlet instead of holding their feelings and emotions in. Often time, our children feel no one can relate with what they're going through. Students are being bullied in school and on the internet all across the country. Help us prevent the lowering of our children's self-esteem and confidence which can sometimes lead to them taking their own lives.

The "Dreamers" curriculum is a beginners poetry series. Students, during their class, explore their dreams and desires for their lives. Through the lens of poetic expression, they then create a roadmap of success to achieve that dream. This curriculum focuses in particular on two forms of figurative language varying due to age (5-9: onomatopoeia and rhyme) (10-12: onomatopoeia and simile). Poet Life is a licensee of the Dreamers curriculum through our partners, "Called To Move" in California.
