– Poetry

Joan Logghe teaches poetry to all grades at SFGS. The students experience reading and writing poetry through a ten-week workshop focusing on forms such as pantoum, haiku, ballad, prose, persona and free verse. The poetry course culminates with the publication of a book containing each student’s best poems and illustrations.


Listen to Santa Fe Poet Laureate Joan Logghe talk about poetry and her 11-year tenure with Santa Fe Girls’ School on Mary-Charlotte’s Radio Cafe.

Santa Fe 400th Youth Poetry Contest winners include four SFGS students–Chiara Brandi, Genevieve Conley, Larissa Foy, and Gabriela Ortiz. The SFGS students were selected among 300 Santa Fe students and were honored on December 8, 2010. Please feel free read their poetry.
