Enter the Youth Poetry Contest!

By FPL_AshleyR

Hear ye, hear ye, April is National Poetry Month! Which means we have 30 whole days to celebrate all the incredible poems and poets we love! Each year we like to celebrate with the library’s annual Youth Poetry Contest. Whether you’ve written a million poems or are thinking about writing your very first one, be ready to choose your favorite to enter into the 2022 poetry contest.

Need a little help getting started? These books provide writing tips and information on different styles of poetry that will get you ready to bust out the quill, or regular pen, and start writing.
