Tend the Flame




A National Writing Project Community Poem

This model poem draws from lines written by National Writing Project teachers who participated in a writing workshop at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Annual Convention on November 20, 2022, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
