Visiting Artist Series at Pocomoke High School

Updated: Jul 7

In 2014, to address student need, then principal Dr. Annette Wallace launched a Writing Center to facilitate writing instruction after school. Since then, the writing center has morphed into a graphics lab, and the writing center has morphed into a visiting artist series which brings artists into the school to work one on one with student creators and teachers.


Funded by grants, the Visiting Artist Series has welcomed Pulitzer Prize finalists, and emerging artists & entrepreneurs to work one on one with student content creators. Pocomoke High School is committed to bringing local, regional, national and international creatives to campus, vis in-person events or virtual events.

You’ll drown dear. You’ll drown When you are high in the sky Under the crushing weight of unfulfilled promises, You’ll drown dear. You’ll drown Deep in the earth Among the footsteps of Elysium, Heroes

It all crumbles when I exhale The salt washing away my sins Cleansing the body I call home Softly, swiftly, swaying In & out Above or below Through but ever so near My watery blanket Of love, denial,
