the poets are coming . . .

This new year seems to be moving even more swiftly than the last. It’s hard to believe we are already moving into the second quarter of the year. It’s hard to believe it’s already spring– poets and basketball players are in full swing with March Madness, with the former gearing up for National Poetry Month.

For poets, every month is poetry month, but we celebrate April along with the masses because being recognized is a cause for celebration. Reading poetry is a cause for celebration. And writing poetry is a celebration in itself.

Over at No Water River, the multi-talented poet, teacher, editor, actor, Renée LaTulippe will begin her celebration of poets and poetry at the end of March–March 30th, with Young People’s Poet Laureate, Margarita Engle. Each day after that, for the entire month of April, another poet will share a poem and a writing prompt.

Do take a look. It will be a brilliant month!
