Teen poetry slam scheduled

| April 15, 2016

COSHOCTON – Students in grades seven through 12 are invited to the Coshocton Public Library on Thursday, April 28 from 4 to 5 p.m. to celebrate National Poetry Month with a poetry slam.

Teens may enter the slam in one of the following categories, or both: Original work is for original poetry that has been written by the teen entering it and will be judged on poetry writing only, not on delivery; recited work is for a teen who is reading someone else’s poem, written by a professional poet, a friend, a family member, or anyone other than the reader. This category will be judged strictly on the delivery/interpretation of poem.

The winner and runner-up in each category will receive cash prizes, $50 for winners and $15 for runners-up. Parents, friends and the public are invited to attend and enjoy the poetry readings. Content of the poetry should be library appropriate. (If questionable, contact Jennifer at library.) Registration is required. Space is limited. Call 740-622-0956 to sign-up.
