Poetry in Motion—Where I Stand

Sunday, Sept. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 20.
Poetry in Motion, in its eighth year, is Wilton Library’s annual poetry program for teens in grades 7 – 12.  This year’s theme is Where I Stand.  This can be interpreted figuratively or literally. Students are invited to submit original poems (serious or humorous; short or long).  Approximately 35 poems will be selected by a student board for a two-performance event in March 2014 at the library.  Poems will be paired with art, music and/or dance for the live performances.  Poems can be performed by the student poet or by someone else. Submit poems as a Word document to teenpoetry@wiltonlibrary.org by October 20, 2013.  Call Susan Lauricella at 203-762-3950, ext. 243 for information.
