In honor of National Poetry Month, why not try writing a few poems?
If you're looking for inspiration, it is everywhere! Need a few exercises to get your creativity flowing? Try poemcrazy by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge. It's a delightful book that brings out the poet in all of us. It's also a helpful resource for classroom lesson
ideas. I used it often as the advisor of an after school Poetry Club. Young poets looked forward to the activities and learned creative ways to enrich their lives.
"poemcrazy is becoming increasingly well-known on campuses both to teachers and students of writing and creativity. It’s been used as part of the core curriculum in places ranging from the Denver and Rhode Island Public Schools to Brown and Evergreen Universities, the Virginia Writing Project and the Guggenheim Museum Curriculum online."
