Teen poetry slam April 22 at Cheyenne library

For National Poetry Month, the Laramie County Public Library in Cheyenne is hosting a poetry slam for students in grades 7-12. The battle begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 22, in the new library’s Cottonwood Room.

And beware — the Wyoming Arts Council’s Mike Shay will serve as one of the judges.

Participants must pre-register for this judged event, which features teams of teen poets facing off against one another, and bring at least four original poems. To register, call 634-3561 or visit the second floor of the library.

The top high school and junior high teams will receive cash prizes (double the amount from last year), as well as awards for individual poets. This event is free and open to the public. Come on out and cheer for your faves.
