  • Sha’Diya Tomlin, junior, reads her poetry off her phone. “I think it’s great how [students] learn to write for themselves, and I think it’s very inspiring to new people that come in and hear what their peers have to say,” Dominic Pioter, english teacher and K Word sponsor, said. “It shows how powerful writing can be.”

  • Cameron Howe, sophomore, listens to Brittané Curry’s poetry. “I know there’s a lot of students here who don’t particularly have a voice, and they go through so much, and they think that nobody is there for them,” Curry said. “I honestly believe that if they came to K Word and wrote their own poetry themselves, they would actually believe that there is hope for them.”
