look-listen-imagine-doPoetry is about feeling, imagining, sensing, interpreting. And its reading or recitation can cast a kind of magic spell…

The Hathorn Approach is a distillation of techniques I’ve developed over many years through my teaching programs, e.g. 100 Views, and adapted to curricula demands.

It has been adopted in classrooms both here and abroad with the joy of poetry at the heart of it.
