Poetry Friday Call For Roundup Hosts

It's that time again. Six months have passed since last we queued up to host the Poetry Friday roundups.

If you'd like to host a roundup between July and December 2013, leave your choice(s) of date(s) in the comments. I'll update regularly to make it easier to see which dates have been claimed.

What is the Poetry Friday roundup? A gathering of links to posts featuring original or shared poems, or reviews of poetry books. A carnival of poetry posts.

Who can do the Poetry Friday roundup? Anyone who is willing to gather the links in some way, shape or form (Mr. Linky, "old school" in the comments-->annotated in the post, Jog the Web, or ???) on the Friday of your choice. If you are new to the Poetry Friday community, jump right in! If you've never participated, but you'd like to get started, choose a date later on so that we can spend some time getting to know each other.

How do you do a Poetry Friday roundup? If you're not sure, stick around for a couple of weeks and watch...and learn! One thing we're finding out is that folks who schedule their posts, or who live in a different time zone than you, appreciate it when the roundup post goes live sometime on Thursday.

How do I get the code for the PF Roundup Schedule for the sidebar of my blog? I'll post it in the files on the Kidlitosphere Yahoo group, and I'd be happy to send it to you if you leave me your email address. Speaking of the the Kidlitosphere Yahoo group, I'll set up reminders on the calendar there. Plus, I'll send the schedule to Pam to put on the Kidlitosphere Central webpage.

Why would I do a Poetry Friday Roundup? Community, community, community. It's like hosting a poetry party on your blog!

  4. Mary Lee,
    Thanks for organizing. I'll take August 2nd.

  5. Thanks for organizing this, Mary Lee - I'll be happy to do the round up on August 30.

  6. Thanks for being such an organizational goddess. I'll do November 29th.

  7. November 15th?

    Thanks for organizing this!

  8. I would like to try...I need to figure out how it would work on tumblr. Please advise me if it's possible, Mary Lee, monitor of internet hallways ; ) If I can make it work, how about August 16th?

  9. Pleas for July 19

  10. Thanks SO much for rounding up the rounder uppers, Mary Lee. May I have Dec. 6? Thanks!

  11. Thank you, Mary Lee. I would like November 1st, please.

  12. Thanks for asking :) I'll take July 26th or any date in December.

  13. Thanks. I'll take October 4.

  14. OK, Mary Lee, I'll give this a try at Merely Day by Day. Is October 18th still available? (


  15. Hello, Mary Lee! You can put me down for Oct. 25. Thank you!

  16. Mary Lee, if no one grabs the spot, I can do July 5th also. Thanks again for doing!

  17. I can do September 27 if you still need it! xo, a.

  18. How about August 23rd for me! Thanks Mary Lee.

  19. Hi ML, December ones are a tough sell, eh? I could do December 13th too, if needed.

  20. Hi Mary Lee--I'll take October 11 if it's still open. Thank you, Queen Organizer!

  21. Hi Mary Lee, thanks for the gentle nudge. ;-)

    Since no one has signed up for July 5, I'll take that so I can't back out between now and then.

    Advice welcomed.

  22. Hi Mary Lee! I'm going to be joining in on Poetry Fridays! I would love to host on September 13th, seems like it's still open. If not, let me know and I can do the November or December dates otherwise. Sounds like fun!

  23. I'll take November 22 at Write. Sketch. Repeat.

  24. I can do December 20. That gives me many months to figure out how to host!

  25. Oh no! I totally missed this! Boo! But thanks to all who are hosting!
