Poetry is Happening in Tecumseh

The Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA) is the place to be Wednesday, April 1, at 7 p.m. as the Tecumseh Downtown Development Authority, Tecumseh Center for the Arts and the Tecumseh District Library host a National Poetry Month celebration and poetry slam.

I talked to Tecumseh Marketing Director Shelley Lim, and she said the slam is only a small component of the evening and she hopes to see people there to read during the open mic session. Also reading will be the winners of the Tecumseh Art Trail Poetry Contest. The slam poems should be inspired by the sculptures on the Tecumseh Art Trail, but Shelley said that poets can read any poem for the open mic session. 

The TCA is located at 400 N. Maumee Street in Tecumseh.
