Delta Poetry Month April 2017

Mar 31, 2017

Delta Museum & Culture staff launch Delta Poetry Month this April, and invite you to create poetry out of magnets displayed at Delta recreation centres throughout the month.

“This initiative came about as a suggestion from a community member. We are encouraging people to be creative and have fun with poetry on the fly,” says Darryl MacKenzie, Curator, Delta Museum & Culture. “Look for more poetry related experiences throughout the year.”

Create a family-friendly poem with the magnets displayed at Delta recreation centres. Snap a photo of your poem. Post the photo to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #DeltaPoetry2017. Involve your family and friends, get creative, and post as many poems as you like! There will be a participatory prize draw at the end of April.
