Lake County “Youth Writes” is a homegrown outreach to local students interested in writing and performing their original poetry in public. It also provides opportunities for students to meet other students with similar interests.
The event is open to Lake County students age 8-18.
To enter, simply show up at a warmup venue and read one or two of your original poems. No pre-registration is necessary but you will need to provide a permission slip signed by a parent or guardian with a phone number or email address where they can be contacted.
There will be warmup venues throughout the county during the month of April to celebrate National Poetry Month.
Selected poets will be invited to read at Rodman Slough Preserve on Saturday, May 3, between 11 a.m. and noon in conjunction with Lake County Land Trust’s Art and Nature Show.
Students are encouraged to show up at as many of the venues as they can. Local poets are encouraged to attend the events and visit with the students.
A warmup venue is scheduled for Giovanni’s Coffee and Tea in Loch Lomond: 1 p.m., Saturday, April 12.
