Coming Soon - National Poetry Month!
So April is not the cruelest month (or maybe it is depending on how you look at it), but it is also National Poetry Month...
Here are a few things that will be going on for National Poetry Month you may want to take part in--
1) Poetry Book Giveaway:
I'll have more details posted about this event this weekend, but basically that bloggers offer 2 books of poems to giveaway to their blog readers (one can be a book they wrote, another a book of poems by a favorite poet). That will be happening here at Book of Kells - I'll create a master list with the participants, so you can surf around to different blogs and learn about new poets and hopefully win a book or two.
Check back this weekend, March 13/14 for more details on how to participate.
Robert Lee Brewer is hosting the Poem a day challenge where poets are challenged to write a poem a day through all of April. 30 poems in 30 days... you might be interested.
3) 30 Writing Exercises for National Poetry Month.
At the end of March, I'm going to post 30 writing exercises to do for National Poetry Month.
4) More about National Poetry Month from the Academy of American Poets...
