Poem in Your Pocket Day

& a Haiku Workshop with Amy Losak

Apr 25, 2019 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Get creative on spring break and join us for Poem in Your Pocket Day, a national initiative that promotes poetry.

Poets House presents a haiku workshop with Amy Losak, based on the award-winning H is for Haiku by her mother, Sydell Rosenberg, as well as interactive performances and pocket-sized poems. Free and open to elementary-aged students and their families and caregivers.

Haiku Workshop: 11:30 AM

Leading up to Poem in Your Pocket Day, Poets House helps young New Yorkers discover the natural world in vibrant, new ways through poetry and art workshops, as part of an annual partnership between Poets House and Lower Manhattan public elementary schools. The resulting poems are collected in anthologies presented to each student. Thousands of selected poems are also distributed on Poem in Your Pocket Day and throughout the year.

Funded by Goldman Sachs and the Battery Park City Authority.

Admission Free and open to the public
