Poetry in April—Poetry Always—Poetry All Ways

Poetry in April—Poetry Always—Poetry All Ways

April is National Poetry Month and I hope you celebrate it poetically.

I celebrated it by submitting my first-ever sestina for publication. It would be outstanding if it is selected for publication, but I feel pretty great just having written something so challenging AND submitting it for review. I discuss what I have learned about the sestina in a related blog post here.

Challenge yourself to embrace poetry, especially if it’s something you never thought you would. I’m guessing somewhere, amid the myriad poems alive in the world today, you can find something wonderful that speaks just to you. Or better yet, you can write something to speaks to someone else.

Celebrate something new. Read it. Write it. Voice it. And if you are a poet already, share it.
