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. 

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.
