BOUT POETRY THURSDAY

Poetry Thursday is an online project that builds community by encouraging bloggers to read and enjoy poetry, as well as sharing it with others.

Every Friday, we post a (completely and totally optional) idea. Some of these are writing prompts. Others are for reading, enjoying or learning more about poetry. As the name implies, these ideas are optional. You can post anything you want on Thursdays as part of the project, as long as it's related to poetry.

Because we post throughout the week, the weekly idea post will not always appear at the top of the page. It will, however, be linked from the top of the sidebar for easy reference.

At (about) 12 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, we will post the Thursday post so participants can begin leaving their links.

To learn more about Poetry Thursday, take a look at the FAQ tab in the header bar above. And, don't forget to check out the copyright tab as well.
