Celebrate poetry all month long! April is National Poetry Month. When I was in high school, Writers and Books used to have an open mike night for teen writers. I read some of my poems. It was a little frightening, but exciting too. If you want to compete, check out Poetry Slam. Its a site that will find locations near you that have poetry competitions.

I used to love writing those poems with friends where you’d write a line, fold the paper over, then another friends would write a line and so on and so on, as long as you would like to go. I think its called an exquisite corpse. Am I right?
