Attention: Students of Poetry!

If you are a student of poetry,  you are invited to share an original poem.  Just post it in the comment section below and we will convert it to a “Featured Post.” Please include your name and location (city/state and country if not in the US).  

Optionally: Include the name of your group or study center! 

This is a special blog we have put up for the posting of students’ poetry during the month of April! Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is celebrated by libraries, schools, and poetry lovers all over the country. On May 5th, after a month of experiencing poetry, Grace Kosloski will moderate a “Great Issues” discussion on POETRY MATTERS online via The Harvey Center.  She has compiled a list of thirty classic and contemporary poems, so that we may celebrate by reading one poem a day throughout the month.
