So what are you doing to celebrate National Poetry Month? Some poets like K. McGee are writing a poem a day. Others like Rachel Bunting are busy with school and work and parenting and just hoping to participate and encourage others to celebrate. Please check out her blog for some great ideas about where to find good poetry prompts if you are interested in writing this month.
As for me, this year I thought that I would step up my pace at recording poetry readings on YouTube and attempt one reading every day. You can check out my Channel here or keep watching this space for daily updates. It should be a lot of fun.
I’ll include from time to time one of my original pieces, but right now I am scrutinizing and editing many of those for submission to various other places in print and on the net. I hope to be able to submit to at least 7 publications or contests this month, and I’ll try to keep you posted here on my progress.
You can also check out poets.org and sign up for their poem a day emails and how to get your hands on Poem in Your Pocket for national Poem in your Pocket Day on April 26th.
Here is Day one of 30 Readings, 30 Days. Wish me luck! And if you enjoy these, humor me and pass them on. Thanks!
