I love April. It’s National Poetry Month! I get to post lots of poetry!
Um…which is, maybe, not so different from the usual around here. Ooops.
But anyway, for those of you who are creatively inclined, Writer’s Digest has a very fun poem-a-day challenge here, with the opportunity to be chosen for publication in an ebook, and a NaNoWriMo style goody-for-you certificate if you write 30 poems. I’m going to give it a whirl, and make this a personal poetry writing month as well as my usual poetry-absorbing-and-promoting.
Also, GottaBook is doing “30 poets/30 days,” with a new previously unpublished poem for kids being posted everyday, starting with today’s by Jack Prelutsky, whom I love.
