Amy at The Poem Farm is hosting Poetry Friday this week.
She's looking back at the previous National Poetry Months as she prepares for 2022 National Poetry Month. Do you have a proverb waiting to be a poem? Check out Amy's idea for April.
2022 National Poetry Month Here
For more than ten years, I have participate in the monthly challenge of writing and posting a poem a day for April. I've written haiku, haiga, chose words with "LL" and write poems for those words, collaborated with a nature photographer and wrote NW creature poem, written food poems, and worked on revisions.
As I started to ponder what to do for 2022, I had this grand idea left over form the #februallage poem. Then I had a little heart to heart with myself. About staying focused. About finishing the revision I want to finish before June on my WIP. So this year, instead of running and diving headlong into the new shiny idea, I am hanging out with my WIP. It's important and deserves my attention.
That said, for Poetry Fridays I have three great author interviews as well as celebrating a new anthology for middle schoolers. Please enjoy this video about Poetry Friday here for the next month

Hi Jone! Look at you getting all techno saavy with your video preview of NPM. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who needs to have consistent heart-to-heart talks with myself. Even more glad that you're actually listening. :) Looking forward to the great (and manageable month) you have planned.

Oh, Jone--you and I are both in the position of having to monitor our focus, our aspirations, aren't we!? Wishing you a ton of time for your WIP. Looking forward to your interviews.

Jone, Eye surgery has left me tired and missing many poetry reads on set dates. Hence, I missed your post last Friday so this week is catch up week. I look forward to all your wonderful events this April.

Glad you are setting time aside to work on your WIP, I'm doing that too, with a bird poetry book I'm working on. I looking forward to your poems and book reviews, thanks Jone!
