Black-out Poetry Contest
Blackout Poetry Contest
April is National Poetry Month, so here’s your chance to indulge in some “creative destruction” and express your inner poet. Create a poem by eliminating – blacking out – the words you don’t want from newspaper & magazine articles (or book pages) that we provide. Three winners will be chosen from entries throughout the county and awarded cash prizes. Talk to a librarian for details. For teens in grades 7-12.
