Learn more about the impact Peace Voices is having for teens and adults.

Peace Voices 2013

Peace Voices

Peace Voices is a spoken word program that uses poetry as a vehicle to tell unique, personal stories.

Participants engage in master classes with Poet-in-Residence Glenis Redmond, both at the Peace Center and in the community. Students are led through brainstorming exercises and techniques in writing and sharing poetry.


"Participating in Peace Voices transformed my classroom. Students were enthusiastic about writing, they wanted to share their writing, and they gained confidence and maturity through the process. Academically, students learned to put difficult things into words, to choose the best words in the best order, and to express their knowledge in a format other than paragraphs. Personally, they learned to encourage and share with others, to take risks in expressing emotions, and to believe in their writing skills."                                             Theresa Blankenship, League Academy
