By Alex Morales
Madill AP students discovered new ways to write poetry at the arts festival at East Central University in Ada on Nov. 12.
"It teaches them different approaches to literature, poetry and writing," Madill senior English teacher Nicole Erwin said about the festival.
Students took advantage of their three choices in classes in learning new ways of poetry. Many students enjoyed the festival and learning new views on the literary arts.
"My favorite part of attending the Literary Arts Festival at ECU was meeting new people and being able to share my views of the literary arts with people who have the same passion as I do," MHS junior Roxy Avila said about the festival.
Other students enjoyed meeting new people and the learning from interesting classes.
"My favorite part of the Literary Arts Festival was Dr. Seuss Silliness, it really taught me a lot about poetry, and I really like meeting new people and sharing our views on literature," MHS freshman Colt Crowson said about the festival.
Every student enjoyed the meal afterwards, as well.
"I just liked the Taco Bell," MHS freshman Josh Huffstutlar said.
