Everyone is invited to “#poetrybomb together all month long!” ABRAMS and Tumblr have partnered up to launch the Poetry Bomb tumblr to celebrate National Poetry Month.
The site shines a spotlight on poems and words of advice from poets. A recent post features a postcard from former Poet Laureate of Virginia Rita Dove with this bit of wisdom: “Love reading first and the poetry will find its place…then write and love the work of writing.”
On April 30th, the PoetryBomb party and live reading event will be held at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in New York City. Some of the special guests set to attend include Paul Muldoon, Cathy Park Hong, and Leigh Stein. “Free drinks while they last!”
