That’s right! April is POETRY MONTH on A Life Among the Pages. And even better, April is NATIONAL POETRY MONTH all over the United States (and other countries, since social media helps these things spread worldwide).
If you don’t know what my Poetry Month or NPM is, you might not have been around the blog for long. If that’s the case, I’ll keep it simple: We celebrate poetry is a variety of ways for an entire month.
That’s what I’d like to do for the month of April, again, this year. I’d like to get as many poets and poetry lovers together to celebrate. With the help of everyone wanting to be involved, we’ll be able to have new poetry shared, thoughts on poetry, and anything else we can think of. If this sounds like something you or someone you know would like to help take part in, please contact me. But first, here’s some more details.
I’m looking for posts to…
- Share a poem or two.
- Talk about a favorite poet or collection (or both).
- Talk about a favorite poetic era or writing style.
- Promote one of your own collections.
- Share thoughts on anything else dealing with poetry.
- Could be
- why you love poetry.
- how it’s effected your life.
- your attempts at writing (even if you didn’t continue).
- Or anything, almost absolutely anything, else you can think of.
- Could be
Want to be part now? Just use the contact form HERE, or email me if we’ve already communicated enough in the past for you to have that address. Tell me what you’d like to share, and in the coming weeks I’ll put together everything as it comes in.
As always, this is a huge event that’s meant to be fun for everyone. You don’t have to be a poet to take part. And be sure to spread the word. That’s something ALATP really needs from everyone. If we want a large turnout, we need everyone to know about this!
