Welcome to National Poetry Month 2011

***This Post Is Sticky for the Month of April and the Poetry Celebration***

Today is the start of National Poetry Month; please do check out Poets.org and their frequently asked questions about the celebration.  One of my favorite features on the site is the map in which you can find out information about your state’s poets.  Keep this in mind for later in the month when I unveil some interactive activities.

You’re probably wondering what is going on here at Savvy Verse & Wit for the month.  I’ve got some great poet interviews posting this month at 32 Poems Blog and I’ve already gotten some other bloggers planning posts celebrating poetry.  Anyone can participate, all you have to do is write up a post about poetry, review poetry, or interview a poet; don’t for get to grab a button and add your permanent URL for the post to the Mr. Linky below.

If you have events in your area that are promoting poetry or poets, please send the information along to me at savvyverseandwit AT gmail, and the information will be made available through my Facebook Fan Page for everyone.

Also, those interested in being interviewed about poetry or providing a guest post or guest review for the celebration, please don’t hesitate to send in a request.
