A Poem as Big as the City

Teachers & Writers Collaborative (T&W) launched its new project, A Poem as Big as the City, in July. This initiative will engage 6,000-10,000 young people in writing poems about their experiences growing up in the neighborhoods of New York City.


The project will culminate in public readings featuring the young poets and well-known New York writers that will be held in all five boroughs, and in the publication of A Poem as Big as the City, a collection of material written during the project.
