For James Mayer, “the solution to reducing that distinction between poetry at home and poetry at school was to allow students to discover their own muses of playfulness. I realized this was somehow related to the request my student had made about teaching a lesson in my class. To get students to write as freely as they do when they write poetry on their own, while at the same time getting them to do it as an ‘assignment,’ I decided to put them in charge. Thus, the student-led poetry workshops were born.”
