For my first National Poetry Month post, I thought I would start with a list of the various sites I have been reading that have dedicated webspace to this most auspicious of months (to us writers and enthusiasts of poetry at the very least!):
- From my fave magazine / site of all, The Poetry Foundation, on their “Harriet” blog: National Poetry Month Is Here Again!
- A great interview on The Huffington Post by poet Anis Shivani (who will most definitely be a New Favorite Poet in the near future), of poet Lynn Xu: National Poetry Month Emerging Poet Spotlight: Interview with Lynn Xu, Author of Debts and Lessons
- Poets.org defines how National Poetry Month came about and has both FAQ and “30 Ways To Celebrate” links here.
- Here’s a more in-depth history on Wikipedia: National Poetry Month
Enjoy the reading, because, there WILL be a TEST on April 30th! ;-D
