Poetry and Poets

How can we write about, recommend and review poetry, when it's so subjective? How can we learn more as readers, or educate those who don't consider themselves "poetry people?"

National Poetry Month 2015 is just 2 days away! What are you doing to celebrate? If you already have plans (eg poem-a-day challenge) but still like to eke out some time to do more for #NPM15, how about participating in my poetry blog project "30 Days of Poetry Love." Where I'll be featuring 30 days of poets talking about poetry. All you have to do is signup using the form found at the bottom of this link. Then answer and return your 5 question and answer portion. You can even include and promote your poetry books (just submit a photo of your bookcover) and a poem of your choice (of course written by you). Sounds interesting? Well I hope you are because I have only the last 9 days left of April still open. So I hope to hear from you and let's together raise the profile of poetry.

30 Days of Poetry Love

Love poetry? Are you a poet? Want to do your part for National Poetry Month April 2015 and spread some poetry love? Then sign up for a Q&A about poetry which will be featured on my blog in honor of #NPM15! You can find the form at the end of every post on my blog IHeartAllStories. A few have responded but I need more. If you’re interested in participating or know someone who might be, tell them about it. Better yet share on FB, Google+ and tweet about it, etc. And remember to use the hashtag #npm15.
