Poetry Friday: Odd Smell
April 1st is a mere three weeks away, bringing with it the glory that is National Poetry Month. On that day I’ll be hosting a gallery of book spine poems (or centos) submitted by you. Interested in getting in on the action? If you give it a try, take a picture and email it to me (scopenotes at gmail dot com) or post it to your blog and let me know.
For those who want to try it with kids, I’ll also put up a students-only gallery on April 1 and add to it for the entire month.
