VerseDay #1

I am so excited to be a part of the new weekly feature VerseDay, organized by the amazing YA writer, blogger, and verse novel champion Gabrielle Prendergast and hosted by her site versenovels.com.  Every Thursday, a different blogger will be highlighting a topic related to verse novels or poetry, and often a giveaway as well.

So here's a little teaser for VerseDay post #1...


VERSEDAY #1 - THE CYBIL NOMINEES FOR POETRY

It's VerseDay! VerseDay is a year long blog fest celebrating all things verse. Each Thursday one of our VerseDay bloggers will post something about verse - a review, a giveaway, writing tips, anything. Other participating bloggers will link to that week's post on their blogs, tweet or Facebook the link and just generally add their support.

For this, our inaugural post, we're going to take a closer look at the 2012Cybil nominees in the poetry category. Personally I love that the Cybils include a poetry category. Despite the popularity of verse novels, poetry is an oft overlooked area of writing for young readers. But as these seven nominees demonstrate, there is no shortage of great collections out there.

Be sure to check out the full post here, and thanks to Gabrielle for organizing this!
