Poetry Potluck


Bring a poem to share to KHC’s “Poetry Potluck,” our virtual get-together to celebrate April’s National Poetry Month. Kansans are invited to participate in this year’s easy, free statewide Pin-Up Poetry project by writing, reading, and sharing poetry about food, family, special occasions, casual picnics, strange salads, and hearty casseroles.

How it works

1. Print postcard templates and writing prompts, beginning April 1.
2. Share poetry – original and by others – on the postcards.
3. Scan & Email postcards to leslie(at)kansashumanities.org.
4. Visit KHC’s Pinterest page to see your Pin-Up Poetry!
