              Poetry is what gets lost in translation
-----------------------------          - ~Robert Frost

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.
