Have a great 2023 year in poetry.


  1. I am looking forward to taking part in the poetry reading challenge this year. Thank you for hosting the challenge again, Serena.

  2. Thanks for encouraging more of us to write about poetry! I plan to review at least 5 volumes of poetry in the next year and to write about various individual poems as they come to mind (I’m writing a post-holiday piece now, with an individual poem) at Necromancy Never Pays (wordpress.com)
