Welcome to California Poets in the Schools Submittables platform.  

California Poets in the Schools aims to offer a First Friday Workshop each month geared towards Poet-Teachers but open to the public. These events occur 11:30am-1:00pm on the first Friday of each month, on Zoom. Workshops will be advertised on the California Poets in the Schools website, and social media. CalPoets' will handle all registration for the workshops. Workshops will occur on the CalPoets' Zoom account. We are seeking proposals from active Poet-Teachers or Poet-Teachers-in-training who are interested in leading a workshop.
