Well, National Poetry Month is over, and with it poem-a-day April. As usual, it was challenging and gratifying and a little scary to post a new draft every day. I will take my April drafts down in a few days, in order to work on revising them. But thank you to my friends who read them. And to my friends who wrote them. Here's Annmarie O'Connell's amazing poem for the last day of the poem-a-day challenge. It is strange and moving and beautiful, as the best poems are.
And thank you again to Maureen Thorson for featuring my blog on the NaPoWriMo site and to Jennifer L. Knox for featuring two (!) of my poems on the Best American Poetry blog. Wow. (By the way, check out Jen's desert island music picks on over at the Poetry Society of America.)
I can't believe it's May already, and that my Vermont writing residency is coming up. eep. I'm grateful to everyone who's donated to my fundraising page for the residency. And sincerely grateful for the wonderful writing community and support system I have in general. Truly.
