Adding poetry to the writing curriculum of Deron High School students in Montclair, NJ produced astounding results-and Lifelines was born. Students previously reluctant to write in more traditional forms embraced the new medium and found powerful voices.The impact of the poetry was contagious. Groups of students and staff frequently gathered in the hall around the poetry bulletin board, reading and discussing the latest writings posted.Touching and entertaining, powerful and sometimes painful, their poems became lifelines of expression for these urban teens.Their unique accounts of their dreams and experiences, struggles with city life, school and relationships speak to the teen in all of us.
