National Poetry Month ... almost gone!

It was a wild month of poetry intensives for me -- readings, daily poems posted to a workshop group, critiquing other people's daily poems, submitting my new manuscript ... am I out of -ings yet?

Poetry in the news, award ceremonies, people actually having recently read a poem, read something about poetry, heard of a poet. The world as if poetry had a real place. A good world!

Don't wait until next April. Find a new poem today. Make one. Hear some poet read, online or in person. Buy a book or literary magazine. Make your own poetry month in May.
