I think this is worth following this month of poetry: Angel House Press is running an online project called NationalPoetryMonth.ca, a celebration of the nation of poetry. Each day during the month of April, a new poem will be published. The writers come from the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada and the United States. The site is free and all of the poets have graciously given their poems without payment. The schedule is below.
