One-Week Countdown: Day 3
Three days left — it’s really a countdown now!
For the last two days, we’ve talked about giving and attending poetry readings. But these aren’t the only ways to find poetry in public spaces, or in a community setting. You could join or start a poetry book club, go to a bookstore that has a great poetry selection, find a community-based writing circle or workshop, or maybe just visit the home of a famous poet from the past. The website of the Academy of American Poets has a great Poetry Near You section, which lets you search by state for reading series, writing programs, conferences, landmarks, and magazines. You can take a poetry-based tour of your own community!
And if any of our readers have ideas for internationally based resources, we’d be very gratified if you’d share them in the comments. NaPoWriMo isn’t just for Americans — despite the “Na,” it’s for everyone!
