National Poetry Month

Celebrate National Poetry Month at Anythink this April with workshops, poetry slams and events for all ages. Tap into your inner poet with partners Art from Ashes, Lighthouse Writers Workshop and Adams County Poet Laureate Kerrie Joy. Aspiring and experienced poets welcome.

Adams County Parks, Open Space & Cultural Arts (POSCA) and Anythink are proud to announce Kerrie Joy as the inaugural Adams County Poet Laureate, part of “Sincerely” – a joint initiative designed to connect the Adams County community through poetry.

Joy will serve a two-year residency from 2023 to 2025, providing an opportunity to advance her art, advocate and promote her literature and work, and serve as a public face and idea ambassador for Adams County. A series of events will be hosted at various Anythink and Adams County locations during the two years, and people will be invited to engage with Joy through both performance and writing sessions.
