Calling all teen poets!
Click here to submit up to two original poems about this year’s Summer Reading Club theme of Superheroes/Heroes.
Poetry submissions will be accepted April 1st to 30th through the online submission form. You can choose any poetry form you like–rhyming, haiku, free verse, iambic pentameter–you name it! Poems will be judged by a panel of librarians for creativity, interpretation of the theme, grammar and spelling, and overall writing quality.

Your super poem could win! Two middle and two high school winners, and one Teen Choice Award winner, will receive snazzy writing journals, and winning poems will be published online on this site!

This blog should conduct a survey of what superpower teens want and let teens come up with their own fictional superpower.
That’s a great idea! We will get right on it!
