Get Ready for the Madness!!! Poetry Madness That is!

It’s almost March, and that means Madness…for POETRY!


I’m honored to once again be participating in Ed DeCaria’s March Madness Poetry Contest! I’m in the running alongside 64 amazing writers. The writing begins March 8th with the first flight word matchups. Voting begins shortly after the poems are submitted. I’ll keep you posted when my poem is up and ready for viewing and voting!

So what can you do to help? Vote! Vote! Vote! And encourage your teacher-friends to register their classrooms as well. The winning group of students receives 64 volumes of kids poetry for a classroom library. At the end of the contest, each participating authlete sends a favorite poetry collection to the winning class. Not only is it crazy-poetic fun, it’s for a great cause.

So watch my blog and be ready to vote for your favorites! Here’s the link to get you started!

Sensibility- It’s the little things, like participating in contests, that keep writing fun. Look for chances to share your work in this way.

Sense- Writing from a writing prompt, or in this case one word, stretches your writing muscles and keeps you fresh!

And speaking of writing..don’t forget to check out PGWRites Critiques. If you need a fresh perspective on your picture books, I’m here to help!
