Which Month is a Poetry Month?
NATIONAL Poetry Month falls in April in the US and Canada. It’s October in Britain.
Fremantle Press has declared July its poetry month (organising a series of events around the launch of three new titles), while in Brisbane, the Avid Reader bookshop has declared September “Poetry Month”, running talks, readings and a poetry competition. Meanwhile, Australian Book Review has renamed its $4000 poetry prize in honour of the late Peter Porter, and is calling for entries of no more than 100 lines, closing date November 15.
I believe that every month is PERFECT for poetry and would encourage all early childhood educators bring some poetry into children’s hearts, homes, pre-schools and schools.
