The March CodePen Challenge continues!

This month’s theme is Movie Night, and each week we’ll pick a movie to be the prompt for the challenge. This week it’s Dead Poets Society!

An English teacher brings an unconventional style to a staid prep school in this Robin Williams’ classic that is both inspiring and bittersweet.

Your challenge this week: seize the day, and make your Pens extraordinary! (Standing on your desk is optional).

Ideas to Build On

  • Typeset your favorite poem set in a beautiful, readable typeface. “O Captain! My Captain!”), perhaps?
  • A stylish RSVP page for a poetry reading
  • A “Get a random poem” button that brings in a classic poem from an API or JSON file.

But, you don’t have to take our lead! You can “strive to find your own voice” instead. Don’t forget to tag your Pen with CodePenChallenge.
