Poem in Your Pocket
April 30, 2020

It’s poetry month!

Is there a short poem that really makes you feel awake and alive, one you would carry with you to share with a friend? Well, April 30th is Poem in Your Pocket Day and Fort Bragg Library would love to share your poem!


Here’s what we’d like you to do:
  • Film yourself reading the poem (try filming it on your phone!).
  • Keep it under 3 minutes and speak clearly.
  • If you are using someone else’s poem, you must give credit to the author.
  • Send the video clip (video+audio required) to fortbraggfilms@gmail.com no later than April 26th.
  • Your email must include your name and this statement:
    “Fort Bragg Library is permitted to use my film for its compilation. I retain rights to original material if I wrote it myself. I consent to the use of my image in this library video.“
Fort Bragg Library will make a short film of people’s poems and post it on our Youtube channel on April 30th.

All ages are welcome to join in: youth, adults, kids, find a poem you like and read it solo or have your friends or parents join in!
