Welcome, April and Poetry Month!

It is April again, and to me that signifies Poetry Month more than anything else. In the past few years (2009, 2008 and 2007) I spent the entire month of April posting a poem a day. This year I have decided not to do that; rather, I am going to post whenever I find a specific poem I'd like to share, or want to review a poetry collection, or interview a poet or publisher.

I am also taking part in Savvy Verse and Wit's National Poetry Month Blog Tour: Serena has set up a month long poetry extravaganza, with each day's offerings listed at her official intro post. I will be interviewing publisher Brick Books on April 4th, a publisher who deals exclusively in poetry and is celebrating their 35th year in business.

There will be lots of poetry goodness to be found over at the links at the Clover, Bee & Reverie poetry challenge this month, I am sure, so don't forget to check that out as well throughout April. And join in if you are already reading poetry or would like to read more.

  1. Wow, you've really got me up to date on all the poetry goings on across the blogosphere. It's going to be a great month! I love teaching poetry to my class all April, too; we end it by writing a bio-poem for their mothers which we give to them for Mother's Day in May. I'm looking forward to the poems you'll post!
