Half-Pints Poetry is an elementary school spoken word poetry and performance workshop series designed for 4th and 5th grade students. The workshop is led by spoken word poet Courtney Smith, as well as RunDSM alumni and high school poets actively involved in Movement 515.
The pilot program began at King Elementary in 2015, and has expanded to 20 elementary schools in Des Moines Public Schools.
