Cleave Generation

In announcement on March 26, 2009 at 11:50 pm

Andrea Barton, a cleave poet, has introduced cleave poetry to her school (RHAM High School, Hebron, CT) where she teaches creative writing.

It has engaged students who have never written poetry before.

Are these students the poets of the future?

Cleave Generation is a site for students of all ages to explore, discuss and experiment with poetry, specifically cleave poetry.

*No experience needed*

“I did want to let you know that a “Cleave craze” has begun at my school. First, I required all of my CW students to try a basic one. From there, they can’t seem to stop, and I have other teachers approaching me in the hallways telling me of what their kids, who aren’t even in CW, are doing!” Andrea Barton Creative Writing teacher RHAM High School.

I was never really that big into poetry until I took a creative writing class with a teacher who is posted on your website Andrea Barton. The first time she showed us her cleaves I thought it to be mind boggling,…” Michelle Lynn Bernard, student RHAM High School.
