The Poem is Telling Me I Remember
Poems from Creative Growth Art Center
Edited by Lorraine Lupo

Poetry Must Go On!
Open the book and read the first page
Dogs go crazy when it goes pow pow
Dogs are wagging and chasing their tails
A group of people are writing a poem together
A page by page collage, and each time you turn a page it’s a whole new experience
A circular spaceship of the book takes you everywhere
Blast off! The book is like a rocket
This is the best book for you to buy, this is the perfect one
It’s like opening a gate
C’mon on in!
The book is far far away in the galaxy of lights, camera and action
You’re kicking things up a notch in space
It’s going to be epic


The result of Creative Growth’s first poetry program, The Poem is Telling Me I Remember is a chapbook that features poems collectively composed by Creative Growth artists during 2019–20. The poetry program consists of unique collaborative writing workshops facilitated by poet-in-residence Lorraine Lupo and guest poet Kostas Anagnopoulos. Poems featured in the book are beautifully illustrated with art from the Creative Growth Studio. Proceeds from sales of the book support the program.
