April is National Poetry Month, which is the perfect reason to read, write, and celebrate poetry. I’m a reader, writer, and lover of poetry, but this month I will be taking extra measures to make time for poetry each and every day. Here’s how:
Here’s a glance at my poetry To Be Read pile. For my purposes here, let’s define TBR as those books that I own, but haven’t read yet.
