New e-Book of poetry for teens

REMINDER: Today at 12:00 noon CST the polls close for Hall of Fame Poets of the Year voting.

Hi everyone,

Thanks to a new effort by Janet Wong and Sylvia Vardell, there’s a new eBook collection of poetry, called P*TAG, which is now available for downloading. The first eBook, PoetryTagTime, was created for elementary students. The latest collection is meant for teens. Once again, the editors brought together more than thirty poets to contribute original work for the collection. Each poet was tagged by the poet before, shown a picture for inspiration, and challenged to write a poem using at least three words from the preceeding poem. It was all great fun and I was pleased to be one of the poets.

CHECK OUT: P*TAG– The first digital anthology of new poetry for teens

You can find it at Amazon for Nook or Kindle. Teens can also play along at the P*Tag blog P*TAG blog:

I hope you’ll check this out and download a copy for yourself and/or for some teen readers in your family or school.

    Yesterday on the Poetry Blog
    I ordered 2 books:
    p*tag anthology of poetry for teens, edited by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong,
    PoetryTagTime anthology for children.
    Today there was an email from Nook telling me I could have a new textbook app for free and the 2 books advertised
    were the 2 I ordered for $.99 and $1.99. So I opened my Nook and read them delightedly.When I tried to find them in June, they weren’t ready. Then today, Instant Gratification! Fast Food for the Soul!

    Fiber Optic Time vs Organic Time
    Which is real?

    Electronic fiber optics
    Info blips
    The pace of electronics

    While my body needs 12 hours of silence
    To reconfigure
    Needs me to turn off.
    Get out.
    Close down.
    To begin
    And complete
    Its reset.
    No drums here.
    No humming.
    The music of birthing every night.
    Darkness and silence required.
