THANK YOU, POETRY FRIDAY FRIENDS!
I am in Gadsden, Alabama, after last night's fabulous event at the Walnut Gallery, ready to teach!
Big thanks to the following Poetry Friday friends who contributed animal persona poems to today's lesson:
Robyn Hood Black
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater
We've got dogs, and tom cats and crocodiles and dragonflies and unicorns and horses and sharks and even a saltopus! What a menagerie. I'll let y'all know how it goes.
Meanwhile, other poets are also doing wonderful things:
If you haven't had a chance to check out VOICES FLY, a fabulous FREE PDF with great exercises and original poems edited by Laura Shovan and Virginia Crawford, go now!
Also, Caroline Starr Rose is offering FREE posters of her writers' words to live by. They include my mama's saying, "err on the side of love," so yeah, I think everyone should get one.
AND, coming soon (Sept. 1!): The Poetry Friday Anthology, edited by Janet Wong and Sylvia Vardell and including poems by so many wonderful poet-friends. CANNOT wait to read!
Finally, don't forget to visit Violet Nesdoly for Roundup! Wishing everyone a fantastic day.
