Teens ages 12-18 are invited to meet and write original poetry to be published in Streams of Thought, an East Jefferson County teen poetry anthology.

Poets included in the anthology will receive their own copy.

There will be examples of a wide variety of poetry styles to help you decide what suits you, along with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Feel free to bring a poem you have written to share.
