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 2021, 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. Here is an explanation that Rene LaTulippe shared on her blog, No Water River, and here is an article Susan Thomsen wrote for the Poetry Foundation.

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, or ???) on the Friday of your choice. If you are new to the Poetry Friday community, jump right in, but perhaps 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? You can grab the list from the sidebar here at A Year of Reading, or I'd be happy to send it to you if you leave me your email address. 

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

  5. Hello, Mary Lee, thank you for the invitation, and this helpful post. There is something I see here and other places, a link to kidlitosphere.org, which seems to not be available any longer.

    May I host at Dare to Care on 3 September?

    1. You are right. The Kidlitosphere website was hacked. It served a purpose once upon a time, but the decision was made to let it go. Thanks for reminding me to remove that from our sidebar!

  23. Mary Lee, I must have missed the call for Poetry Friday hosts. Is the November date open? If not, let me know which July date is open. Thank you for always scheduling the roundup.
