2022 Poetry Reading Challenge

It’s that time of year again where reading challenges emerge. We, as readers, just love to challenge ourselves by expanding our horizons and reading more than we did in previous years.

2022 is no different.

  1. One of the easiest, and possibly most difficult, will be getting people to sign up to read a poem-a-day through the Academy of American Poets Poem-a-Day service. The challenge is to read a poem-a-day for a week once per month and write about which poems were your favorite and why. You can write up a short blurb on your Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, or your blog. I’d love for you to share your experience in the comments each month.
  2. Second, read at least 1 book of poetry (doesn’t have to be cover-to-cover) and write about your favorite poems and what you learned about yourself while reading those poems.
  3. Third, if you want to go all out, feel free to read as many books of poetry as you can in one year and link to your reviews in the comments.

If you accept one of the options or the whole challenge, leave a comment with where you will be posting about your year in poetry.

In August, I’ll be hosting a poetry book read-a-long. Voting on which book we read will be done in July 2022.
