Once again, it's April with his shoures soote (in this case, snow showers). And that means once again it's National Poetry Month. And, once again, Laurie Kincer of the Cuyahoga County Public library has put together Thirty Days of Poetry, featuring a poem from a Northeastern Ohio Poet, and a poetry prompt, delivered right into your inbox every day this month.

Hello, poets!

Every day in April, you’ll receive a poem by a poet who lives, works, or has some important tie to northeast Ohio; a poetry writing prompt to try; and a poetry book to check out of the library. Here’s a sample of the daily blog and the link to sign up for it. 

 

You’re also invited to these special poetry workshops:

Happy National Poetry Month to you and yours!
