    I love how the artists reimagined comic art for this poem. As a teacher, I can see this helping children to understand and appreciate poetry more clearly, especially some of the old classics. Thanks for sharing!

    Do you guys accept poetry submissions as well as article submissions?

    Great piece.

    I’ve recently gotten my screenwriting students together with a fellow teacher’s comic art students. My students help with the story and the art students do the illustrations. It’s fun to see where it all goes! I love to be able to share things like this with them so inspire their imaginations.
