We have written posts for Poetry Month in the past but this year we are going to do it a little differently. We will be making a poetry-themed post every school day in April. Sometimes it will be a resource, sometimes it will be a great piece that might serve to inspire our writers (and us!), sometimes it will be a spotlight on a form one of our executive is teaching at the moment.
If one of these posts reminds you of something you do in your practice, you can share your idea in the comments.
To start the month off I will remind you that if you have students writing poetry (or prose) you may want to suggest that they submit their writing to the BCTELA student writing contest: Voices Visible. The deadline to mail them is April 22. Don’t forget, you must be a member of BCTELA to enter students’ work.
You can download the submission guidelines and entry form here.
