{National Poetry Month} On Mail

On Mail by Natalya Lawren {guest writer}

I’ve spent this month talking to you. Similarly, poets devote themselves to a message but rarely receive a direct response. It’s time for this to change. It’s time for you, reader, to talk back.

Of course, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below, but what I had in mind was poetry.org’s Dear Poet Challenge.

They set up this absolutely fantastic opportunity for National Poetry Month involving a slew of famous poets, and the ability to send them mail. I’ll let you read it for yourself, and although I know it has an age limit, I would encourage even people who cannot participate in the competition to consider the process and write to their favourite poets. National Poetry Month is intrinsically linked with the idea of community. So a poet is waiting for your letter, just as you are waiting for a poem. Read a message and write back. We’d love to hear from you.

thoughts? would love to hear them...
