Pongo Publishing (dba Pongo Poetry Project, Pongo Teen Writing Project)
Pongo Publishing (The Pongo Poetry Project, The Pongo Teen Writing Project) teaches and mentors personal poetry by people who have suffered traumas such as abuse, neglect, and exposure to violence. We especially focus on individuals who have a hard time expressing themselves. To accomplish our goals, Pongo runs writing programs inside detention centers, homeless shelters, psychiatric hospitals, and other sites where trauma is a dominant theme for the residents. At the heart of Pongo’s work is a carefully developed and uniquely successful therapeutic methodology that we propagate nationally and internationally, as a significant aspect of our future service.
