April is Poetry Month!


April is National Poetry Month in the U.S., so it's going to be a REALLY EXCITING month in the kidlitosphere. Woot woot!!

Sylvia will review a children's poetry book every day at Poetry for Children.

Tricia will interview a poet (or two!) every day at The Miss Rumphius Effect.

Greg will present a previously unpublished poem by a different poet every day at GottaBook.

Anastasia will post a poem by a K-12 student every day at Pencil Talk - School Poems.

Kristy will have conversations with people who don't think they like poetry at Reverie -- Abstract Musings on a Hopeful Life.

Elaine will give away children's poetry books at Wild Rose Reader.

Jone, of Check It Out, will collaborate with students so that they can send their original poetry on postcards to different people.

And of course every Friday is still Poetry Friday: kidlit bloggers all around will share their poetry-related posts.

Have I mentioned that this is going to be a REALLY EXCITING month in the kidlitosphere? :D

Thanks so much for spreading the word about the poetry prizes I'll be giving away at Wild Rose Reader during April. I'll also be giving away books of light verse at my other blog, Political Verses.
