Between today and April 1st, the Cuyahoga County Public Library is promoting its National Poetry Month site with emails that encourage people to sign up to receive daily posts, and the chance to win tickets to the April 8th reading by Robert Pinsky. Please share the link with your friends:
How's that: A poet a day till the beginning of May! Each day in the month of April, the site will feature a prompt, a poem by a Northeast Ohio poet, and a link to a poetry site (some related to the national celebration, but most related directly to Ohio poetry or Northeast Ohio poetry). Read-write-poetry!
--or, if you want to see a poet laureate but can't make the library April 8, Kent is your place: how about celebrating National Poetry Month with Ted Kooser? The Wick is bring Kooser to Kent on April 10 at 7:30 pm.
Or, if Lorain is your place: celebrate National Poetry Month with the Lorain Public Library's Third Annual Poetry Slam and Open Mic Readings on Thursday April 10 at 7 pm.
