Teen Poetry Walk

In collaboration with Xicanx poet, Crystal AC Salas, we hosted workshops with local teenagers and our Teen Advisory Board and asked them to re-imagine the world around us through poetry. We’re asking local youth to create and contribute their own poems by watching Salas’ virtual workshop, Poetry as a Portal to Imagining Worlds. These poems will be published and displayed in a Poetry Walk that the library will present at our community parks. To create your own poem and contribute to our Poetry Walk, watch this virtual workshop provided by Salas and submit your work here.
