Are you kidding? National Poetry Month? There’s such a thing?
There is such a thing, and it has begun.

Unbeknownst to you, National Poetry Month started April 1st! Our remixing of poetry today was right on schedule. And what fun we are having creating ‘new’ poems from existing poetry and then extending the meaning of the poems through illustrations, fonts, spacing, and paper and colour choices.
We are not done with making poetry…not yet.
In the meantime, you might want to check out some pretty cool poetry sites. First up is actually a how-to on formatting your poetry in your blog. I love these pointers.
Another great site to check out is The Teen Writers and Artists Project. The first poem posted is a really poignant, and to the point.
Check it out and leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
MAKE GOOD ART!
