DAVENPORT, IOWA (March 25, 2021) — Help us celebrate National Poetry Month by creating poetry. Each Tuesday in April, we will be discussing a different kind of poetry and then trying our hands at creating it! We will be meeting virtually using GoToMeeting each week. To register and find meeting information, visit https://bit.ly/dpl-diypoetry.

A limited number of kits will be available which contain some but not all of the materials needed. Patrons will need to supply their own scissors and glue. You do NOT need a kit to participate in this program. Please register if you would like a kit. Each kit contains the program supplies for each session.

April 6 at 3PM Black Out Poetry

April 13 at 3PM — Silhouette Poetry

April 20 at 3PM — Acrostic Poetry

April 27 at 3PM — Poetry Collage
