Shorts on the Ledge may take place in Craft Theatre nowadays, but neither the name nor the premise have changed. It is a low-key, non-competitive venue for Community High School’s poets to read their original works and to celebrate National Poetry Month, April. The name “Shorts on the Ledge” was coined by CHS teacher Tracy Anderson, and according to Poetry Club leader Ellen Stone, it was too good to change! Thirteen students and two teachers read their poems for the 2014 Shorts on the Ledge.
