It's National Poetry Month!

April 1, 2018

Calling all poets!! It's that time a year poets rise up to the challenge of writing a poem every day of the month of April. Some will even share some of the poems on social media. It's a poetry boot camp of sorts. As we embark on yet another journey of 30 poems in 30 days let's not forget to read.  I speak for myself when I say I could read more so I thought I'd compile a list of 30 poets I'll be reading this month...some for the first time and some I'll be revisiting. Feel free to grab a copy of work by one of these poets! Happy reading and of course, happy writing!
