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.

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, 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(nother) 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!

Put your request in the comments and I’ll update the calendar frequently. Feel free to share this post on Twitter (I left and I’m not missing it…much).

  1. hi mary lee – appreciations for rounding! if 2nd Fri. of July is unclaimed ~ the 8th~ I’d luv to handle the host honors. 💌 jan [pubbed in poetry as jg annino/ bookseedstudio]


  2. Thanks, Mary Lee! I think by November 4 the dust may have settled and I can be relied on to do the job.


  3. Can I host on August 5th? (I thought I’d already responded but there’s no comment to be seen! I don’t know why I’m at all surprised by that.)


  4. I’ll take November 25th if it’s still available. Ruth, thereisnosuchthingasagodforsakentown.blogspot.com


  5. Mary Lee, thanks for scheduling the rest of the year. I tweeted this information out on Twitter. I would also like the instructions for posting this schedule on my blog. I know that I asked early in the year but never connected with you via phone.
