30 Days of PoetryRead+Write: 30 Days of Poetry

Cuyahoga County Public Library celebrated National Poetry Month 2014 with 30 days of poetry. We provided poems to write, poems to read, poetry websites to get to know and poetry books to check out from the library.  What made this site special: our focus on the poets and poetry of Northeast Ohio. Read+ Write: 30 Days of Poetry was a collaboration between the Cuyahoga County Public Library and Northeast Ohio poet Diane Kendig, who conceived and created the content for this celebration.
