There are all sorts of directions you can take: share a memory, a lesson, a favorite poem, a collection of verse novels you love, ways you wish you’d been taught about poetry — really, there is no wrong way to go about this. I’m hoping the collection of posts produced for April will be informative, celebratory, resourceful, and an opportunity for conversations to naturally develop.
Here are some guidelines:
- I have no minimum length requirement, though I ask you keep things under 500 words. Readers sometimes lose interest after that point (confession: I don’t always hold to this myself!).
- If you are able, it would be great if you could include pictures that might enhance your post. All that I ask is you have permission to use the image (think collective commons jpegs or pictures you take — and have permission to use! — on your own).
- Please include links back to your blog, Twitter acct., FB page, — anything that might put readers in touch with you and/or might promote your sites and work.
- Send your post to me by March 15, so I might put it on the schedule.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. If you know of somebody who might be interested in writing a guest post, feel free to pass this information on!
