Plan your National Poetry Month

I'm not the only one with something special up her sleeve for National Poetry Month. 
Blogger Serena Agusto-Cox at Savvy Verse & Wit has a great looking NPM blog-roll. For each day in April, she has a poets, interviews with poets, and poetry reviews for you to check out. Think of it as a gallery tour of poetry. (There may be a few changes in the schedule. Check SV&W for updates.)
I'm on the schedule for April 15 -- Tax Day. That's when I'm posting my Poetic Wall of Shame -- a list of states that don't have a poet laureate.

Enjoy these great sites. I'm handing it over to Serena...
