COSHOCTON -- Teens in grades 7 to 12 are invited to celebrate National Poetry Month in April by participating in a Poetry Slam at the Coshocton Public Library on Wednesday, April 18 from 6 to 7 pm.
Two categories of judging will take place and teens may enter either or both. The categories are: Original work, original poetry that has been written by the teen that has entered it and is judged on writing only; and Recited work, a teen reading poetry written by someone other than the reader, and judged strictly on the delivery/interpretation of the poem.
Judging will be performed by a guest panel and prizes will be awarded. All content should be library-appropriate.
For questions, contact Jennifer Ricketts at the Coshocton Public Library.
Registration is required.
Snacks will be provided.
Call 740-622-0956 to sign-up.
