Youth Poetry Classes @ Busboys & Poets

Class Starts January 12, 2019

The Poet Life has partnered with Busboys and Poets to offer Writing and Spoken Word Poetry classes at the Takoma location. Classes will be held every Saturday from 9am-11am for 8 weeks. Class seats are limited. There will only be 10 seats for each age group (5-8, 9-12, 13-17). Please register below (scroll down) to secure your child's seat in the class. 






We will be building your child(ren)'s self-confidence, raising their self-esteem, and encouraging self-expression. The students will be served a full restaurant-catered breakfast each morning to make it easier on you, the parents. 

American Breakfast (from the Busboys & Poets Kitchen)

• Scrambled Eggs
• Choice of Turkey Sausage, Bacon OR Ham
• Home Fries
• Whole-Wheat Toast
• Assorted Juices

...riding in style!

The students will go on a field trip to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. They will meet and be mentored by professional poets. The students will gradually have the confidence to get on stage, stand before their peers, and share their original poetry.


At the end of the semester, they will have a graduation where each student will recite a poem they wrote and receive a certificate of achievement. Families are invited. Register your child today or consider sponsoring a student or two.
