Craig Czury has been creating poetry, poetry performances, poetry environments in schools, community centers, shelters, prisons and hospitals for over 20 years. Author of 15 books, he is published internationally, translated into Russian, Lithuanian, Polish, Spanish and Portuguese. His award-winning Poem Fusions, collaborative multi-voice poetry performances with his students, have been produced for stage, school cafeterias, arts festivals and radio all over the world. Czury (pronounced “Chury”) brings vision and depth to his students’ writing. As Czury puts it, “You can’t write until you can see.” Whether poems rising off their page through expressive voices, lines of poems interwoven with color and design for walls, Power Point Digipoems laced with family photos on the computer...it’s with his poet’s eye that Craig passes on his wonder and enthusiasm for poetry to his young poets, who will not be writing children’s or juvenile poetry, but POETRY as windows, mirrors, doors.
