BOTHELL — April is National Poetry Month, and if you fancy yourself an aspiring poet who is looking for a venue to express your work, then you’ll want to be a participant of Northshore Speaks.

The event, sponsored by the Northshore School District, is scheduled to take place Wednesday, April 29 from 6-7:30 p.m.

“The location is to be determined, or it will be held on Northshore’s Virtual Stage,” NSD Communication Director Lisa Youngblood Hall stated in an April 2 press release.”

Northshore School District students and staff members interested in participating are asked to submit original spoken word poems to by 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 16 to be considered for the event.

“If an entry is selected, District Communications will connect directly with the student and their family, or the staff member,” Youngblood Hall said. “If students and staff are not interested in speaking, they are more than welcome to attend.”

Hall said the spoken word entries will also be highlighted on the District’s Facebook and Instagram pages throughout the month of April. She added the event is intended to connect, reflect and hear multiple perspectives from the Northshore community.

The community is encouraged to reserve tickets ( as seating may be limited, depending on whether the event is held on campus or virtually, Hall said.
