April is National Poetry Month.

Below are 6 ways to get into the spirit of poetry!

1.  Write a poem.

The deadline for the poetry contest has passed but the library is always accepting submissions for the

Morton Literary Journal, published each year in the Fall Semester.

Email your submissions to reference@morton.edu

2.  Read a poem.

Morton has an excellent collection of poetry.

Check out a book today by a favorite poet, or explore new poets.

3.  Attend a poetry reading.

Check the Poetry Foundation for a listing of current local events.

Or plan on attending the Morton Open Reading on April 26 at noon in the Library

4.  Share a poem.

Carry your favorite poem around with you on April 18, which is Poem in Your Pocket Day.

5. Poem Tweets.

Read new poems everyday posted by POETSorg and others on Twitter.

Better yet- Tweet your own poems!

6. Poem Apps.

Always wanted to impress your friends with your wise words?

Learn poems by heart with a new poety app by Penguin books.
