At her blog Today’s Little Ditty, poet Michelle H. Barnes just launched a project called the Ditty of the Month Club (DMC). It’s a fun way to get acquainted with authors, and experiment with poetry. Each month features a different author and poetic form.
May’s author is Laura Purdie Salas, whose latest book, “Water Can Be…” came out in April with Millbrook Press. May’s poetic form is cinquains; in particular, cinquains about water, and memories of water.
Michelle is taking submissions directly on her blog. She’ll feature some of the poems she receives on her blog, and all of them will be included in a round-up post at the end of the month.
