CU Poetry at the Library - Mystery Poem Week

  • Champaign Public Library - Room 215 200 West Green Street Champaign Illinois (map)

Mystery Poem Week

This week pick out one of your own poems and a poem from an author you admire (preferably a poem we will not all recognize i.e. two roads diverged in a wood). Send your 2 poems to or to my profile email here and I will print them out anonymously.  

The fun? Guessing who wrote what - Think you know everyone's style in the group? Let's put that to the test and mix it up a little.  Think "famous" poets are above critiquing?  Not today we critique everyone equally - well known poets and everyone else.

Too late to send them to me? No email? Then just bring in 6-8 copies of each in Times New Roman 12 point font or whatever is easiest. Can't find a poem not your own - just let me know i got lots. 

Hope to see you and your mysteries at the far end of the stacks in room 215.
