Poetry Club & Anthology
The One World Literary Society meets weekly and is open to all middle-schoolers. Students read a new poem each week, interact with published authors on Skype, and write their own pieces. Last year's guests included several U.S. state poet laureates.
Every year, Lourdes puts out an anthology of poetry, prose and artwork by students and faculty. Middle-school students serve as editors, selecting pieces for inclusion, deciding on fonts and layouts, and coming up with the book's title and cover design. All students and teachers are invited to submit work -- and no one is turned away! Our first two collections, The Art in the Poem (2017) and Blossoming Beauty (2018), serve as fantastic proofs of the Lourdes family's creativity.
