YAS 2015 tableau for web
At the 2015 Young Authors’ Symposium, “Poetry Out Loud,” approximately 160 students from area schools learned about persona poetry and the art of tableau at Mid-South Community College. Led by Alex Waddell Smith and Leandria Jack Smith, each student wrote his or her own persona poem, which will all be published in an anthology. Each table of five students then selected a poem to perform through tableau.
