TYCA National Poetry Month Celebration - Previous Revision

Welcome to the TYCA National Poetry Month Celebration

A new poem will be added to this page each day of April to celebrate National Poetry Month. We hope you come back each day to enjoy the poems we post, all original works by community and two-year college English faculty. If you are a poet, we hope you will consider submitting your work for consideration. While we hope to publish at least four poems from each of the TYCA regions, we will be accepting submissions until further  notice from all regions. Thanks for visiting.  --Bradley Bleck TYCA Webtender
