National Poetry Month is a marvelous way to celebrate the expressiveness, delight, and pure charm of poetry.
This month allows us to change our perspectives and look upon poetry as a rhythmic art.
Celebrate this month with our Teen Poetry Contest, book lists, resources, and more.
Calling All Teen Poets
Each year we celebrate National Poetry Month in April with our Claudia Emerson Teen Poetry Contest.
2022 marks the CRRL’s nineteenth year hosting this event, named in memory of Claudia Emerson, former judge, and advocate for our teen poets.
