April is National Poetry Month and I am appealing to all my readers and writer friends to promote poetry this month. The following activities are simple and offer support to your poet colleagues:
- Seek out the poets in your life. Ask them about their work.
- Buy a collection of poetry and read it. Send the poet a thank you note.
- Go to a Poetry Group reading during this month.
- Drag out any piece of poetry you have written in your lifetime. Read it, polish it, and submit it.
Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance. – Carl Sandburg
