On Saturday we began a conversation about children’s poetry and where humor fits into the picture. Looking back through the comments, you will see a variety of positions taken and opinions given.I think the day was well spent, so much so that I’d like to pick up the chat again today. Some of you may not have been at your computers over the weekend so here’s your chance to join in.
If you need an introduction to our subject, reread the post for Saturday and review the comments posted by nearly three dozen participants.
So what do you think? You have a good chance today to add your thoughts.
On another subject, Lee Bennett Hopkins has completed his guest blog so I’m looking forward to bringing that to you in early February. I’ll post his bio the day before.
If you are interested in additional opportunities to enter your prose and poetry, go see Kathy Temean’s site today at http://kathytemean.wordpress.com . As always, Kathy keeps track of what’s going on and posts it to help her visitors find additional outlets for their creative efforts. Thanks, Kathy.
No poems from young poets yet this month but our adult division is alive and well! We’ve seen more poems posted in the first ten days than we have in any previous month. Lots of chatter too. Keep it up! We have plenty of time left for you to write your “time” inspired poem and share it with the rest of us. Teachers, we’re all waiting for those student masterpieces.
