National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern.We hope to increase the visibility and availability of poetry in popular culture while acknowledging and celebrating poetry’s ability to sustain itself in the many places where it is practiced and appreciated.
Help us celebrate National Poetry Month at Twin Hickory Library.
Write a Haiku for us at Twin Hickory Library and enter it into our contest!
Three age groups can participate.
- 14-and beyond!
We will use a rough guide of 17 syllables, in the order of 5,7,5 per line!
In the spirit, not exacting!
Prizes will be awarded for the best Haiku in each age group!!!
