Mendocino County Poets In The Schools (MPitS) is an independent
educational organization that places poet-teachers in the classroom to
foster an appreciation for poetry and encourage students to develop their
poetic voice. We help students celebrate their creativity, intuition and
intellectual curiosity through poetry and the creative writing process.
Our multicultural community of trained, published poet-teachers bring
experience and love for their craft into the classroom every day."
Nine poet teachers have the opportunity to work with approximately 13,000 students each year. An affiliated branch of California Poets In The Schools, MPitS is funded in part by the Mendocino County Office of Education (MCOE). MPitS also receives funding from county schools, individuals, and foundations. Our Programs are supported by donations from people like you.
