"Marie provided poetry workshops to juvenile first-offenders referred through the State Attorney's Office. Her engaging sessions were therapeutic and helped the youth gain insight and redefine their concept of self." - Claudia Calabrese, LCSW, Community Youth Services
"Broward County's Main Library hired Marie Whitman to do a poetry workshop. I was impressed at how she used popular culture to draw the students' attention but more so at how she was able to have several of the students talk about themselves candidly, in front of the group and then guided them to create performance poetry. Marie connected with the students which allowed everyone to feel comfortable and creativity flowed. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Marie again; she captivates her audience as an educator and artist." - Lynlee Lebensart, MLIS, University of South Florida
"Ms. Whitman inspired the girls that she worked with, to express themselves through writing and get in touch with emotions. When Marie performed her own poetry, many commented that it “Sounded like a song." The New D.A.Y. program has benefited tremendously from collaborating with her." - Jasset Tharp, MS, Community Youth Services
