"COVID motivated me to take my best material and create this slam poetry video series to help teachers in these challenging times."
"Rik’s sessions are engaging and supportive from the first steps of the writing process, to the final stage of doing a slam! The program was especially valuable for my students who struggled with self-esteem, coping and communication. I highly recommend!
Teacher, Chief Sunrise School, NWT
The students were entranced. It is one thing to follow the curriculum. It is another to teach its worth in our lives. Rik Leaf did just that! I highly recommend to other schools.
Teacher, Heart Lake Secondary, ON
There was a really powerful exchange of ideas as Rik reinforced some great poetry writing techniques that students could apply to their own writing.
Senior Literacy Consultant, NT, Australia
It is without hesitation that I recommend Rik Leaf to schools wishing to enhance creative writing and public performance skills & to build self-esteem, motivation & resilience in their students
