April is national poetry month. It was founded in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets to remind the public of the importance of poetry and the integral role of poets in sustaining our culture.
This year, the Trumbull Library System would like to offer teens a chance to celebrate this occasion with a poetry contest.
The rules are simple:
The winner will be announced on April 5th
The winner will receive a $20 gift card to Barnes & Noble as well as a copy of Ibi Zoboi’s book-in-verse Punching the Air
A limited supply of magazine cut-outs/words will be available for teens to take in the library foyer starting March 1st. They will be in a basket marked as such.
Good luck to all participants!
