Poetry Tag and Other Sites--National Poetry Month

Today, I'd like to introduce you to some other bloggers who are celebrating National Poetry Month. Sylvia Vardell at Poetry for Children is playing Poetry Tag. Poet J. Patrick Lewis kicked it off on March 31. He tagged another poet, who tagged another poet, and so it goes. Take a look for a new poem every day!

Greg Pincus. at Gotta Book offers us Thirty Poets, Thirty Days. He has invited thirty prominent poets (no, poets aren't all dead white men!) to share new poems each day of this month.

Over at poet Lara Salas' blog, Writing the World for Kids, find a new poem for children every day this month by well-known children's poet.

Finally, create your own poems using Scholastic's Poetry Maker! Have fun!! Share your masterpieces--if you dare!


  1. Thanks so much for the plug-- and other info! Lovely to connect with other poetry-fans--

  2. Hi! I was wondering if you knew of a site that was called something like quilt your own poem. You type in your poem and it either quilts it or knits it for you. I know someone posted it on a poetry blog, but I can't seem to find the link.

  3. Hello, Jane! So glad you visited Sylvia's terrific Poetry Tag. I am happy to find your wonderful, poetic blog and learn about your books.

  4. Thanks for your comments, all. This poetry month thing has taken on an energy of its own! Joan, the poem at your blog is beautiful, and I hope it will soon be so green here. Mandy, yes! I intended to feature it this month, so why not tomorrow? In the meantime, it's Knit Yourself a Poem, a British site at http://www.poetrysoc.com/content/knit/knitgame/
    Enjoy and stay tuned!
