Please note: 2021 is the final year for the Poetry Leaves project. Thank you to everyone who submitted over the years. 

Due to the pandemic, the 2020 Poetry Leaves outdoor exhibit was cancelled. Instead, the exhibit was launched online in April 2021 in celebration of National Poetry Month. The online exhibit ran from April 1st to April 30th. The Adult Contemporary Edition and the Children's Edition of the 2020 print volume are currently available for purchase. 

We will be retiring the Poetry Leaves project after the online exhibit of 2020's poems. Thank you to all who submitted and to our sponsors. 

The Poetry Leaves anthologies are available to read in the collection at the Waterford Township Public Library.
