Honoring National Poetry Month - Reading Poetry Every Day!

While many of my friends are participating in National Poetry Writing Month (aka NaPoWriMo) -- writing a poem a day for the entire month -- at this point, I am taking a break from drafting for a little while.

So, to honor National Poetry Month, I am simply focusing on reading poetry every day.

Here's what I've read so far:

* A Handful of Bees, by Dzvinia Orlowsky
* Crab Orchard Review, Winter/Spring 2012
* The White Words, by Baron Wormser

And I am currently reading American Poetry Review, Sept/Oct 2012.

How are you celebrating?

AND writing a series of 15 poems for my Exile Literature course.

Wow! Sounds like a great way to celebrate poetry! I loved Dancing in Odessa, and have a couple of the others on my "wish list" for future purchase.

Reading lots of poetry: April Poetry Magazine, Greg McBride's book, Charles Wright (always!), several daily e-mail poems, et al. Writing a little. Wrote a post for Laura Shovan that went up on her blog today (4/18).
