Resources for Teachers and Students

Performances, Workshops, and Curriculum

Bring exceptional DC poets to your school for workshops or performances, or attend a spoken word poetry performance. Asynchronously, we provide video lessons and curriculum built around poetry by DC poets.

Out of School Time Opportunities

Day Eight currently operates out of school time opportunities in partnership with area schools and through the support of Learn24 and the Cornellia T Bailey Foundation.


We publish youth writing in our literary magazine and anthology books. Learn more about Day Eight’s publishing work here.
