I’ve noticed no one has taken me up on my offer to publish your original poetry on Teen Connections. (Email your appropriate, SFL, safe for library, poem with first name, age to amargis[at]wnpl[dot]info)
Maybe you need to be inspired. GottaBook Blog is hosting 30 Poets/30 Days to prove that poetry is still alive and thriving. Famous writers like Jacqueline Woodson and Walter Dean Myers are all contributing previously unpublished poems every day this month. Today’s poem is Joseph Bruchac’s “Bear Path.” Be sure to check in everyday for new, never before seen poems and maybe you’ll be inspired to write (and submit) your own.
