National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month!

To celebrate, during "Studio Scribes: Creative Writing Club for Homeschool Teens", we got poetic. Inspired by the Guerrilla Haiku Movement, we sprang to the sidewalks outside the library. Teens welcomed passersby to join us as we chalked haikus on the concrete. It was hard to come back inside! That’s right, poetry doesn’t have to be stuffy, nor solitary- just go out there, observe the world, even connect with others, and write!
