Have you heard of Poetry in Voice / Les voix de la poesie?  It’s a recitation contest for Canadian high school students.  They have a useful teachers’ page with lesson ideas and link to other resources.  Speaking poetry aloud can completely change the way students can access poetry.

I just saw that this year’s national finals are being held in Vancouver!  If you’re in the area, it will be pretty cool to check out:  May 8 & 9.

The best part about Poetry in Voice (this month) is that they are doing the same thing as us: they are tweeting a different poetry idea every day.  If you’re on twitter, check out @PIV_LVP.
