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.
