Resources for National Poetry Month


Post Updated for 2010: Instead of writing up an entire new Resources for National Poetry Month post for 2010, I've edited my 2009 post. I eliminated all the links that no longer work and added links to all the poetry book reviews that I've done in the past year. I hope you find the following poetry resources helpful. Happy Poetry Month!!!

Oh, what a terrific resource post. Thank you! (And thanks for listing my site under poets, too.)

Laura,

It took me quite some time to update last year's list of resources. A number of the book lists and resources were no longer available. But...I did find some great new resources.

Becky at Farm School said...

Oodles of wonderful stuff, Elaine -- thanks so much! I've linked to it to spread the word...
