Hello, Dear Reader! We’re so glad you’re here.
Welcome to National Poetry Month at MetreMaids.com. Throughout the month, we’ll be bringing in various perspectives on poetry from some of our favorite poets and poetry lovers. From the very beginning, one of the goals here at Metre Maids has been to make poetry fun again. To make it as accessible and exciting as it is literary and cultural. (Not that there’s anything wrong with literary and cultural, you know, but sometimes those words can seem synonymous with “dusty” and “snooty,” which we totally don’t think fit with poetry.)
With this in mind, we invite you to join us in celebrating poetry this month. Enjoy the guest posts, leave our writers some comments, and write some poetry of your own!
The Metre Maids
Kristin, Amber, Broede, Chris, Helen, Chauncy, and Sarah
