National poetry month begins in just one short day. Here are some of the celebrations you'll find around the blogosphere.
Greg K. at GottaBook is celebrating the first annual 30 Poets/30 Days, where every day in April he'll be posting a previously unpublished poem by a different poet!!Here at The Miss Rumphius Effect my Poetry Makers series will feature at least one interview (sometimes two!) with a poet every day during the month. The complete schedule is below.
Sylvia Vardell at Poetry For Children will be reviewing a new children's poetry book every day.
Elaine Magliaro will be giving away children's poetry books at Wild Rose Reader and books of light verse at Political Verses in celebration of National Poetry Month.
Anastasia Suen at her new Pencil Talk blog will be collecting school poems written by children throughout April and posting one every day.
Jone, at Check it Out, will be doing a variety of poetry projects with students in her school, including a “Write a Poem-Send a Postcard” event with her students. Contact Jone if you would like to receive an original poem from one of her students.
