30 Poets/30 Days - the 2010 Edition Tease

31 days!!!! That's all the time that's left until National Poetry Month... and here at GottaBook, the kickoff of 30 Poets/30 Days - 2010!

Last year was the inaugural 30 Poets event, and it was such fun for me that I'm doing it again.

So where's the list of participating poets, you ask? Hey... I'm a tease - I'm not sharing yet. I can tell you it has some overlap with the fabulous Poetry Makers series at the Miss Rumphius Effect... and that it has lots of non-overlap, too.

And I can definitely say it's a stellar list of amazing poets all, once again, sharing previously unpublished work - a different poem/poet every day in April - to celebrate the month.

Stay tuned for more hints and announcements as the month goes on. And I hope you'll stick around - it's gonna be a poetry party!

I am so looking forward to your "30 Poets/30 Days"! Last year I incorporated it into a display in my library, where I printed the poem of the day each day, and added books by the featured poets. It was fun!

That's a great use of the poems, I think. I got sent a few photos of some similar uses (hint, hint :-)) last year, some of which show me just how incredibly creative librarians and teachers are! Classes read the poems every day or once a week or or or, and, well, it was fun. And that's the goal! Glad you'll be around this year, tooooo.

Hooray! I loved this last year. So pleased to see that you're doing this again, Greg. Thanks!

I'm a horrible secret keeper and just couldn't wait to share. (Notice I couldn't even wait until March 1st!)

Can't wait to read all the wonderful new poetry you and these poets will be sharing.

I'm coming out of lurk mode to say how excited I am that you're doing this again. When I glance at your "Thirty Days" graphic, I see the word "thirsty." I guess I am thirsty for poetry!
