It is just about that time of year–Poetry Month.
I do enjoy having a whole month where everything is poetry. Do you have any special plans for this month?
I know some poets plan to write a poem-a-day during April.
I’ll be having a fun time at my local library on Poem In Your Pocket Day. I’ll be helping the children to write their own poems.
I’ll also be participating in a progressive poem during April. Thirty children’s poets have agreed to work together to post a line a day to build a poem. My day for adding a line is April 2.
April 2 is also declared David L. Harrison Day in Springfield, MO. David is a great children’s poet who blogs at www.davidlharrison.wordpress.com David has a monthly poem challenge for poets to post their poems to his word of the month.
Do you have your own plans for a Poetry month celebration?
Please share your poetry plans in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
