PoeTRY Something New 2018

Hmm. not sure what to try, but I'll think of something. Click here.

2017 got away from me at the end of the year, but I wanted to get this post up early for those interested in continuing their poetry reading in 2018.
I love seeing which books others read, and I often add new books to my ever-growing TBR list of poetry books. I’m sure 2018 will be no different.
If you’re interested in reading poetry this year, challenge yourself to try something new. Read a single volume of poetry outside your comfort zone. 
If you normally read classic poetry, read a contemporary volume. 
Another challenge would be if you read from a book at home, go to reading instead and hear a poet read live!
