Two fun ways--actually, three--to celebrate National Poetry Month:
1) Visit Knopf's Poetry Month/Poem-a-day website to read daily the works of published poets, even sign up to receive the poems in your inbox throughout April.
2) Read the prompts and poems of the 3rd Annual PAD (Poem-A-Day) Challenge at the Writer's Digest Poetic Asides blog. Especially during this challenge, the poets who participate become like family, and the wondrous constructions that arise from the prompts demonstrate the endless creativity of the human mind.
3) Start posting your own poems there in the comments. Unless you catch up, you won't qualify for judging of the Top 50 Poems, but you can still enjoy participating, perhaps even drawing comments from your fellow poets. Especially during this challenge, the poets who participate become like family.
Warning: this whole process of reading and posting poems is addictive, and the evil codes that prevent robots often must be re-entered repeatedly for your poem to show up.
*Congrats to Haven Conner, who won my review copy of Found Art by Leeana Tankersley.
