Today is April 1, 2022, the beginning of National Poetry Month. Heidi at my juicy little universe is hosting all the poetry goodness in the world today.
Happy Book Birthday, Imperfect II. Thank you Tabatha Yeatts for editing and encouraging people to submit. So excited to be a part of this collection. Anthologies for the MG audience, 5th-9th grades, are limited.
Tabatha Yeatts has offered a prize that is swoon worthy. A copy of 3d drawing and optical illusions: how to draw optical illusions and 3d art step by step Guide for Kids, Teens and Students. New edition
and a set of Staedtler Mars Lumograph Art Drawing Pencils, 12 Pack Graphite Pencils in Metal Case .
It's the perfect prize to go with a sneak peek at Alana Devito's poem, "The Art Teacher Said" which is in this new collection.
What a great way to begin National Poetry Month. I hope you'll come back for some great interviews this month.
BONUS: Fifth Graders Create Art and Poems

I LOVE Alana's concrete poem. Thanks for this sneak peak into the anthology. I can't wait to read poem, Jone, and everyone else's!

Forgot to say: thanks for sharing the video of the fifth grade art and poems--they're quite stunning!

Congratulations on your poem in Imperfect II! Yay, to Alana's lizard poem! It's hard enough to write the words of a concrete poem on paper, then to type the words on the computer without messing it up must have been extremely difficult. I absolutely love the video you made of Monochromatic Poetry by Mrs. Erison's fifth grade class! The collages of their chosen colors on a white background with their detailed poems on the right surrounded by a black background looks so professional! Wow, what a great effect! The kids must be happy about their work being presented in your video and Mrs. Ericson and you must be proud of them. Wonderful job, Jone! Thank you for sharing joy, inspiration, fun, and creativity.

Loving that pink poem. What lucky students when you are the substitute teacher. Happy poem-ing!

Lots of goodness here, Jone. What fun those fifth graders must have had with you when writing. And the concrete poem is really great. Thanks for all!

Pardon my so-late comment, Jone! Imperfect II is going to be big, I think! Thanks for featuring it and the prize...but what I really love is those collages and color poems. WOW!

What fun! I love the concrete poem by Alana. That is one good lizard, made with text. Amazing!

Jone, It only took me several weeks to read this post that is fabulous with a concrete poem, an amazing video filled with monochromatic collage poems. Would that class and teacher be willing to let me show their video at my Poetryliscious Gallery that honors creative talents during NPM22 Month? Let me know, please.
