Summer blog party this Friday!

Hi everyone,

This Friday, June 9, I’m having my fourth virtual blog party. If it goes like the first three, we should have hundreds of visits and comments throughout the day as people check in to see who’s here, greet old friends, and ask or answer questions. I don’t claim this as my idea. It was originally suggested by Joy Acey and Matt Forrest. Here’s the link to the first party, which, by the way, lasted three days!

I hope you will mark Friday on your calendar and plan to drop by my blog anytime during the day and return as often as you wish to keep up with the festivities. To let everyone know you’ve arrived, click on the little balloon in the upper right corner of the post, scroll to the bottom of the list, and post your comment.

Here is more information about Joy, who first came into my life at my 2011 Poetry Workshop in Honesdale, and Matt, who arrived in 2013.

Joy Acey is a childrens poet published in the Poetry Friday anthologies compiled by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong. Her poems have also appeared in Highlight’s High Five and Pockets magazine. She lives on Kauai with wild chickens and lots of rainbows. She loves adventure and to travel. She has over 2,000 poems and many writing exercises for children on her blog http://www.poetryforkidsjoy.blogspot.com


Matt Forrest Esenwine’s children’s poetry can be found in numerous anthologies including Kenn Nesbitt’s One Minute Till Bedtime (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2016), J. Patrick Lewis’ The National Geographic Book of Nature Poetry (National Geographic Children’s Books, 2015), and Lee Bennett Hopkins’ School People (Boyd’s Mills Press, 2018), as well as ‘Highlights for Kids’ magazine.

  1. I could sure use a party and some happy happenings right now! Thanks for hosting another party, David!

  2. Thank you, David. Had to smile last night, though, when I woke up in the middle of the night and looked over the edge of the bed. Colter is gone, but Dakota (another corgi) had quietly taken over Colter’s spot by my side of the bed and was keeping watch over me.

  3. Listened to Matt, smiled back at Joy. Thank you, David for your social media for poets experience. Now I’m writing about the animals who spoke to me today. In notes; will post it tomorrow.
