The Prompt Jars

There are now two Writing Prompt Jars for reference when you don’t know what to write. Writer’s Block isn’t the best, we know that for sure. The jars will be in the library by the suggestion box at the circulation desk. You can take a prompt or add one whenever you want, and others who are not in the Writing Club are free to do so as well. Make sure your prompts are school appropriate and well written. The content of the jars will be supervised, so watch what you write. We hope that you will use this to your advantage. Keep writing 🙂


Teen Poetry Contest

Spring is almost here and that means it’s time for Wake County Public Libraries’ Annual Teen Poetry Contest! From now until April 15th teens in grades 6-12 can submit up to three original poems in their grade category (6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th). This we are featuring a special optional category. Teens can submit an additional poem based on our Summer Reading Program theme, “Every Hero Has a Story”. First, second, and third place winners will be chosen in each of these categories. Winners will be featured on the library’s website and honored at an awards reception at Cameron Village Library in May 16th. The winner of our special category will also be featured on our Summer Reading Program website. The Teen Poetry Contest is the perfect way for Wake County teens to celebrate National Poetry Month this April!
