Blackout Poetry Contest

BlackOut-Poetry

The Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County celebrated National Poetry Month in April with a Blackout Poetry contest.   Patrons were able to submit poems all month long that were created by taking printed text and blacking out words, leaving the ones they like behind to create a poem.   We received some very creative submissions.  Congratulations to our winners!
