Pongo's Web Site, Use and Outcomes

Since 2012 we have collected over 17,000 surveys from youth who have written poetry on the Pongo web site. Youth were asked to complete surveys only when they chose to email their poems to others, so we can expect that many more thousands used the web site to write and print poetry that wasn't emailed.

Here are the responses from the poets who wrote on the Pongo web site:

Did you enjoy this writing experience?     89% YES

Do you feel proud of the writing you did with us?     85% YES

Did you write about things you don't normally talk about?    64% YES

Do you think you might write more in the future?     84% YES

How much writing have you done before?

47% - A LOT      12% - SOME      20% - A LITTLE      14% - NONE
