Some of these poems will be turned into stencils and decals for sidewalk installations around Johnstown! The poems will be stenciled using invisible spray that appears like magic when wet. How cool?!

Everyone’s haiku will be published in a book that will be handed out at the end of the project. We will also have a community reveal celebration where children and teens will have the opportunity to read their poems.

All attendees will receive a gift card for one FREE specialty drink at the Write Cup. There will even be a special Rain Poetry drink available at the Write Cup on the day of the program!
