When Kelly and Eva were interested in reading poetry, they asked if I had any suggestions. Jason and I both compiled a list of our favorites and when Kelly posted about it on her blog. Quite a few people asked if it was a challenge. Kelly and I started thinking… maybe it should be!
Now that the New Year has come and gone and you’ve started on all your challenges and readalongs, Kelly and I would like to jump in and add just one more. Instead of a readalong or a reading challenge, though, this is a blog-along with one goal: blog about poetry once a month.
If you regularly read poetry, if you’re just starting to explore the form, if you want a reason to read more, but most of all, if you want a place to talk, gripe, or wax poetic about poetry, this is your blog-along. If you want a place where you can ask questions about poetry, share your favorite poem, discuss how poetry makes you feel, this is just your kind of event.
Most of all, this is a laid-back way to get the book blogging community posting about poetry. This isn’t necessarily a challenge to read more poetry, though we hope you will! (Check out Serena at Saavy, Verse & Wit’s awesome poetry challenge!) There is only one rule: post about poetry once a month, on the last Tuesday of the month. Then Kelly and I will write a wrap-up post the following Friday to keep the discussion going.
