Select Thomas County Central High School freshman students were invited to attend a special poetry session in the school’s media center Wednesday, Oct. 24. 

Devon Glover, known as “The Sonnet Man,” visited the school as part of Thomasville Center for the Arts’ Art with Schools Visiting Artists program. The workshop was a branch off of an outreach performance presented by TCA earlier in the week to which all TCCHS ninth-graders attended. Glover spoke with students about Shakespeare and the Bard’s poetry skills illustrated in his sonnets. 

Then, students worked to create their original interpretations of a Shakespearean sonnet.
