The annual Teen Poetry Night, an open-mic event for high school age poets and poetry lovers, will be held Monday, April 30 at 7:00 pm in Franklin’s Rathskeller Coffee Haus.  To celebrate National Poetry Month, young poets are invited to read or recite their original works, as well as share their favorite works by other poets, earning RAT Bucks to be spent at the event on The Rathskeller’s beverages, sandwiches, snacks and desserts.  There’s no pre-registration; participants are given stage time in a round-robin format.  Family members and friends are invited to come and cheer their teens on.

This event is sponsored by the Arts Council of Macon County, supported in part by the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
