Vermont Stage and Young Writers Project invite all middle and high school writers to respond to one of the writing challenges below to accompany Vermont Stage's upcoming play, "I and You," April 20-May 8 at FlynnSpace in Burlington. The winning submission will be printed in the play's program and the top three writers will receive a pair of tickets to see "I and You,"
a play that focuses on unfamiliar classmates who must complete a school assignment on Walt Whitman’s "Leaves of Grass." (Find out more at www.vermontstage.org.)
The challenges:
1. Write a poem that includes this line from Walt Whitman: “I believe in you my soul.”
2. Interview/talk to someone who is different from you, in any way, and write a poem about the experience without identifying the person. What did you learn? What was interesting and surprising?
