‘Poetry in Motion’ helps Wilton youth find their voice (via The Hour)

Tor Aronson had always enjoyed writing, but had never really fancied himself much of a poet. It wasn’t until his eighth grade teacher submitted a poem of his to the Poetry in Motion contest at Wilton Library that Aronson began to consider poetry seriously.

“I was a little bit skeptical as to whether or not poetry was my thing,” Aronson said. “I didn’t really know if it was something that I would continue, or whether or not it would help me grow as a person.”

While Aronson entered the Poetry in Motion program a bit ambivalent toward poetry, the Wilton High School junior said his attitude shifted after seeing the kind of collaborative effort to make good art that went into the program.
