national poetry month is here

Okay, so I’m a bit late with this announcement. Chances are you already know about April being National Poetry Month and NaPoWriMo (national poetry writing month). There’s a few links I’d like to share to start this celebration of poetry for all you literature lovers, art admirers, and hackers of the human condition.

CBC kicked off their CBC Poetry Prize with daily writing inspiration and tips. Check it out there’s some great writers who share insights.

There’s also another site I stumbled upon this morning, AllLitUp. I guess they do annual gathering of poetry and poets. Last year was a resistance poetry, Poets Resist. If you’re a fan of email newsletters and getting a poem sent to you make sure to sign up for the Daily Poetry Cure.

I will be joining in with some poems this month as well as sharing some of my favourite poets and poems. I’ve been checking out lots of poetry books from the library so please check back here. Till next time. Happy writing!
