April is poetry month. Which means that if you haven’t spent much time with poetry, you can enjoy it guilt-free — and maybe discover you like it. There should be lots to enjoy. Especially since the people who love poetry are going to be all over it.
One such example is Greg Pincus. Greg is a screenwriter, author, poet and the entertaining blogger of Gotta Book. And this year, he’s the founder and host of 30 Poets/30 Days, an event that will see his Gotta Book blog host new and original work by thirty guest poets, a new poem for each day of the month. Contributors include Mary Ann Hoberman, Jon Scieszka and Jane Yolen, and will kick off on April 1st with a contribution from Jack Prelutsky.
On this edition, Greg Pincus on 30 Poets/30 Days.
Check out Greg’s poem, I’m Pretty Well Connected, which speaks to our own fascination with social media. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of podcasting in it.
