Event Description

Join us for an excellent evening of poetry as we continue an exciting tradition for Ann Arbor’s young writers! The Neutral Zone has partnered with several nationally-acclaimed writers to select the next Ann Arbor Youth Poet Laureate. Several finalists will read their work and the 2019 Ann Arbor Youth Poet Laureate will be honored. The winner will receive a contract to have a debut collection of poems published by Red Beard Press. Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard, Ann Arbor’s 2018-2019 Youth Poet Laureate, will pass the torch to the new winner and read from his brand new book. This event will also be the release of a chapbook by Ann Arbor/Ypsi youth poets of color, the culmination of a weekly workshop series led by Aldo as a part of his Poet Laureate leadership.

For grade 6-adult. Held in 4th floor meeting room
