Small, but powerful! Your $1 helps keep my blogs and videos free for teachers, parents, and poets everywhere!

I'd love to add your name (or the name of a person you're donating on behalf of) to the acknowledgement section of my future children's poetry and curriculum books in return!

How lovely! $5 goes a long way towards the materials and supplies I need for my community workshops.

When you give at this level I'll send a 20% discount code for the books and merch at

Ghazal Gifter

Nothing ancient about web hosting fees! $25 single handedly keeps my blog up and running for a month, ensuring I'll never have to add a pay gate for that content.

In exchange for helping, you can suggest a blog topic!

Is there something I haven't covered yet that you'd like to read about? An aspect of the workshops, my take on an issue in education, my biggest workshop fail? Any topics under the umbrella of education and poetry I'd be happy to write about!

Hi, I'm Donnie Welch.

I run poetry workshops that support the individual differences of students and young adults with autism and developmental disabilities.

These workshops are based on the idea that movement skills and sensory integration go hand-in-hand with literacy learning; that movement helps us understand rhythm, rhythm helps us understand poetry, and poetry helps us understand each other.

Head over to for more and myself and my work!
$23.05 of $600 per month
When we reach $600 a month I'll start work on a full-length book about the Sensorimotor Poetry Workshops.
