The purpose of the Poetry Leaves project is to make poetry a part of the everyday lives of Waterford residents and visitors to the Township. Each May, a street exhibition of poems submitted by area poets, both the novice and the accomplished writer, hangs in the trees on the Waterford Township Civic Center campus. The exhibit is now closed. To purchase a volume of poetry from this year's exhibit, please visit http://www.poetry-leaves.com/purchase

Submission Guidelines:
  • Must be an original poem by the author submitting
  • Entries can be typed (in a readable font) or handwritten (in pen or marker only, please)
  • Minimum font size: 14pt
  • Maximum length: One 8.5"x11" page
  • Deadline for entries: April 15, 2017
In addition there are programs, workshops and poetry readings offered at the Library to enrich your experience of poetry and help you write your entry for the 2017 exhibition. Plan to join us for any or all of the following events. Unless noted otherwise, all events are held in the Library's Community Room.
