April: National Poetry Month

You might have heard about April being National Poetry Month. (Actually, it’s National Poetry Month in the US, but we thought we’d borrow the idea and quietly turn it into INTERnational Poetry Month!)

So, for the rest of April, you’ll find us posting about our favourite poems, cool books of poems, poetry walls, and Poem in Your Pocket day on 29 April 2010.

Did you know that there’s a poll over on the home page of the Alphabet Soup website? Vote and let us know how often you read poems (or have someone read poems to you)!
