The New Read Write Poem

Dana Guthrie Martin et al. are launching a bigger and bolder version of Read Write Poem this Friday. I’ve read about all the new features, and I’m very impressed. As I told Dana on her site, I foresee creative writing teachers flocking to this online resource. It’s going to be very interactive, with forums, celebrity poet prompts, more reviews, more news, more of everything. They’ll even write your poem for you. Just kidding, 🙂

After writing a column at Read Write Poem for almost two years, and after working with many of the poets who are still involved, I feel a special kinship with this community, and I applaud their continued energy and expansion.

Make sure you check out the new site on Friday, July 31! I know I’ll be there.
