Write Poetry! (and share it)

DID YOU KNOW that the finale for this year’s Teen Summer Reading Program is an Open Mic Night and Poetry Slam?

Would you like to perform, but feel unprepared—you have a poem, but maybe it needs work, or you haven’t written one but you have a great idea…?

Come to our POETRY WORKSHOP, with famous poet April Halprin Wayland! She will help you write or polish a poem, which you can then slam at the finale! The workshop is on Thursday, July 12 (yes, next week), at 3:30 p.m., at the Central Library.

Even though the flyers don’t say so (an oversight), you DO need to SIGN UP for this workshop. So call 818 238-5589 and leave your NAME (first and last!) and PHONE NUMBER (spell your name if it’s not Smith or Jones), and you will be on the list for the workshop with April.

P.S. Notice that the finale is also an OPEN MIC NIGHT, so if you want to sing, or play, do a monologue or share your standup comedy routine, that’s good too! We will have sign-ups for that event later on…
