National Poetry Month 2012

Because of student teaching finishing up at the end of March, and then completing my portfolios during the first half of April, I have really missed out on National Poetry Month…

BUT: it’s not over yet. I’m reading and writing poems constantly today, and I wanted to share some links of places that are doing a wonderful job with supporting National Poetry Month:

1. The Always-Wonderful Poets.Org: They have a whole list of ways that you can read, write and enjoy poems throughout this month.

2. The Rumpus: One of my favorite online literary places, they’re posting great poems daily. Check them out!

3. And a little closer to home, IU South Bend’s Schurz Library on Facebook: They’re posting some really stunning, impressive work by students and faculty every Friday.

I hope you find at least one of these enjoyable. I find them all to be really impressive.
