Tomorrow is my first time hosting Poetry Friday. Longtime Poetry Friday Posters – please bear with me while I fill some new friends in on the details. If you’re new to Poetry Friday, you can participate in several different ways… 1) Read my host-post. Visit the links others leave in the comments. Feel enriched by poetry. 2) Leave a comment on my blog. If you follow a link to another blog and love the poem or commentary posted there, leave that blogger a comment too. 3) Leave me a comment with a link to a poem you’d like to share. Give brief info – who you are, poet and title of the poem you’re sharing, maybe why you’re inspired to share it today. Remember to include the link (I forgot the first week I participated). 4) If your blog has a post with a poem (yours or someone else’s) or you’ve written about poetry, leave a comment with the same info as #3. Include the link to that post on your blog. I hope you’ll find something surprising, unexpected, or maybe rediscover an old favorite while you’re reading through people’s poetic offerings. I’ll be posting something Dodge Festival related around midnight. Expect a wee-hours round up, another before each school bus run (9 AM and 3 PM), after football practice (9 PM) and a final round up in the late evening. I’ll do a procrastinators’ round-up early Saturday AM. Please check in during the week of the 29th. I’ll be sharing poetic postcards from the Dodge Festival. On Poetry Friday 10/3, stop by for an exclusive interview with poets Khalil Murrell and Michael Z Murphy. Both are Festival Assistants for Dodge. They will give us a behind-the-scenes view of America’s biggest poetry festival. See you tomorrow!
