Literary Arts


As a literary artist, Sizemore has collaborated with teachers to integrate literature, creative writing and the arts with the social studies curriculum through 100+ in-school residencies (varying from one week to nine months). She has over 300 stories and poems published in magazines and anthologies and one published book of poetry. Her greatest pleasure is helping young people to find their own voice, whether they are writing poems or documenting their community traditions.

Sizemore provides distance learning options, including Zoom meetings for poetry writing. The same activities are available as paper packets for students lacking reliable Internet access.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, supports Arts for All Kentucky with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
