What Would Poets Do (for National Poetry Month)?
Here’s what a few of our EIL poets are doing:
Kelli Russell Agodon celebrates April with an annual Big Poetry Giveaway at her blog, inviting poets to participate in giving away books of poetry by poets they love. This year, 25 poets have joined in, including some of our EIL poets, such as Donna Vorreyer and Jeannine Hall Gailey. Check it out here.
Many poets are writing a poem a day in connection with literary journals, websites, and workshops. I’m doing that myself, and I love generating 30 drafts in April to work on during the year. Hmm, so that’s why so many of my poems are about spring!
What are you doing to celebrate National Poetry Month?
