April - National Poetry Month

National Poetry Month

 Do you long to wax poetic?  Can you haiku? Are you a poet who just doesn't know it?

Join the North Channel Creative Writing Club as we celebrate National Poetry Month on Saturday, April 23 at 2:30 pm.  Experiment with new poetry forms and read works by authors you have not tried before.

Join the Academy of American Poets on Thursday, April 14th to celebrate Poem in your Pocket Day:  "The idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends."
