Mattie’s Peace Poetry

Posted on: September 22nd, 2014 by jeni No Comments

 

An Occasional Outreach Activity

Expressing peace – Mattie’s words, your voice.

-

We share the “Mattie peace poem or quote” we have selected for the year or activity. Participants are invited to shape that poem with their own voice, and words — through print and video translations, through individual or group readings (in English or other languages), through family or group activities using the poem, and more. We provide simple step-by-step instructions for the activity. Then, we post all the submissions we receive — from individuals,  families, schools, and communities —  on our website. We also gather all of your creative expressions together, and create one combined peace poetry display (in video, art, or other forms) that celebrates global peace. 

TIMEFRAME & DEADLINES:
Activity season varies in season across the years.
Deadlines for “featured submissions” will be clearly posted.
Submissions featured prominently for 6-8 weeks,
then moved to “Year-round Outreach Activities” pages.


Remember —
we always welcome new translations
(print or video)
from any previous poetry
theme or activity year.
