With spring finally upon us (fingers crossed), and March drawing to an end, National Poetry Month is just around the corner. Every year since 1996, April has been declared National Poetry Month, making it a prime time to read and reflect upon a great form of writing as well try your hand at some of your own.
As such we would like to introduce Word Wise, KDL’s sixth annual poetry contest for teens. Starting on April 1 you will be able to submit your poems online or at your local KDL branch. By mid May winners will be annoucnced and will recive a $50 gift card to Schuler Books and Music. The winning poems will also be made available on our website. Check out the teen page for complete rules and an online entry form. If you are looking for some inspiration, feel free to check out this list of KDL staff’s favorite teen poetry books, or stop into the library and ask for a recommendation.
