Wax Poetic: Virtual Poetry Night by Candlelight (Gentle Reads Hour)

Celebrate National Poetry Month (April) with a virtual poetry reading hosted by Sycamore Public Library! Read a favorite poem, your own piece, or simply attend and listen.

We invite Teens and Adults ages 12+ to a Gentle Reads Zoom poetry hour from 7:00-8:00pm CST. This hour will include up to 10 people with 5 minutes each to read and answer any questions about their poem.

The Gentle Reads hour will not have any mature themes or topics, and readers will submit their poem for advance approval. Once approved, we will set you up with a time slot to read your work!

While registering, you can:

• Choose the option if you're planning to read or just listen.

• Submit a poem for performance approval in the Gentle Reads hour.

• Reserve a pack of tealight candles to pick up. Use them to surround yourself with candlelight while you attend from home! (While supplies last.)

(If you're looking for the Mature Reads hour, where mature themes, topics, and language can be used, please find the link here.)

After you register, your confirmation email will contain the Zoom link in the 'Additional Notes' section. You will also receive a reminder email with this same Zoom link 2 hours before this Wax Poetic hour begins.
