Author Alice Faye Duncan's Poem for Gwendolyn Brooks

Author Alice Faye Duncan writes a poem to use when teaching her #DiverseKidlitNF book, A Song for Gwendoyln Brooks.


By Alice Faye Duncan, #DiverseKidlitNF Author


I wrote A Song for Gwendolyn Brooks across two years (2015-2017). Researching her life on the South Side of Chicago, and reading poems by this Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, taught me many lessons that will benefit writers and readers. I have shared a few of those lessons here, in an acrostic poem.
