The Magical Poetry Blimp is a source of “pro-active poetry,” a dramatic approach to the teaching of poetry in the classroom and in the community. The Blimp is a vehicle for the imagination — techniques for learning and loving poems. The Magic Poetry Blimp is the official project of Carol Muske-Dukes, as Poet Laureate of the state of California — though The Blimp, in partnership with Get Lit and the Get Lit Players, reaches audiences throughout the state of California — and beyond!
