Teen Poetry Night


This event has passed

Teens! We invite you to join us for Two River’s very first Teen Poetry Night! Step onto the digital stage and read a poem from any artistic era or style that speaks to your experience as a young person living in today’s society. Get creative! Does a poem written in 1624 perfectly capture the uncertainty of living in quarantine? Does a Futurist poem from 1926 paint the image of hope that you want to articulate? Get creative! This community reading will be led by one of our former Metro Scholars and special guest MC, Christianah Akinsanmi and will take place on Zoom.

We are currently seeking readers! To participate:
