The North Grenville Poetry Guild hosted their final meeting last Thursday, April 20, before taking a break for the summer months. As April is National Poetry month, the group is looking forward to celebrating and recognizing the event. The National League of Poets has chosen ‘Joy’ as this year’s theme.
Another important date to remember is April 28. It will be recognized as ‘Poem in Your Pocket Day’, where you carry a poem with you and are encouraged to share with others.
Here are some ways that you can celebrate: share a poem that you loved as a child with your family and friends; bring back the fun memories of writing poems when you were in grade school; challenge your friends to an improv Haiku, and share on social media using the tag #NPM23.
