It’s here—April is National Poetry Month, and there are events going on all over the place. Sherry at Semicolon is starting her Classic Poetry Survey on Monday, April 5th. Today’s post explains how it has changed a little from the initial concept, and how things will play out starting Monday. Join her for some classics!
You can find more events and resources at the Academy of American Poets website. Thursday, April 29th is Poem in Your Pocket Day. Carry a favorite poem in your pocket and share it with family, friends, etc. I like that idea—simple, personal, a good project for kids that you can elaborate on (or not) if you want to.
As for me, I’m planning to keep my posts poetry-related, especially where music and poetry meet. We’ll probably join in for Poem in Your Pocket Day, and maybe some other things, too.
