Poetry has the capacity to empower and heal. Thank you to everyone who participated in the Slam--poets, judges, audience, and anyone who supports poetry. This year we had to move the Slam to a digital platform, something that has not been done at OHS. It was a challenge, but a successful one!!!

The OHS Library believes in offering students access to academic enrichment opportunities so they can reach high expectations and achieve powerful futures. For that reason, the OHS Library sponsors monthly poetry workshops and hosts an annual Poetry Slam. With the help of published poet, Ventura College Professor, and Master Poet-Teacher in the classroom, Fernando Salinas, students gain personalized feedback on their poems so they can improve their craft as artists and establish their voice as future leaders.
