For the last several years, I’ve used this blog every April as a space to help folks write and share poems. It’s been fun, but I’m thinking it’s time to do something different and possibly combine efforts.
Ben Rimes has a great site up at Poetry for People where he’s posting visual prompts and folks are sharing poems. This month, let’s spend some time together there. Poetry is better when we’re reading and writing together1.
How are you working poetry into your life this month and all months?
