Poetry Friday Eve!

Poetry_Friday logo‘Twas the day before Poetry Friday
And all through the kidlitosphere,
All the bloggers were stirring –
Hoping it would be here…

Welcome to Poetry Friday Eve!

I’m very excited to be hosting the festivities tomorrow, so I thought I’d do everyone a favour and start accepting links now in order to get a head start.  Makes sense, yes?

So if you have something you’d like to share, just leave your link(s) in the Comments section and I’ll update tomorrow’s blog throughout the day!

Thanks, Matt

  10. HI Matt
    I’m planning weekly blogs from various contributors over the year every Thursday this year – VerseDay! We’re looking at all forms of verse but I’m especially interested in verse novels, hence my blog I’d love it if you would invite your visitors to check it out. I’m highlighting the Cybils nominees too.
