If you want to try something with a random “Poem of the Day,” the Poetry Daily website offers just that: a poem of the day.  The site also keeps archives of the last 365 days of poems, which you can search by date, title, or poet.  I often find a gem or two when I glance through the archives, like Sarah Lindsay’s “Rain of Shadows.”

A Canadian source of online poetry and poetry-related information, you could peruse The League of Canadian Poets site. While looking around their site and blog, I noticed that they also have a project called YoungPoets, which is great.  They run a poetry contest whose winners have been just announced and I would like to point out that the first & second place winners in the senior category and the third place winner in the junior category are from BC!  Well done, BC English teachers!!

The youngpoets page includes a Teachers’ Lounge, which has a bunch of great ideas and resources, like this one post from a teacher in Ontario who shares a number of tips, resources and lessons.

Happy exploring!
