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 all the various socials.

  1. Hi, Mary Lee! I was sitting here drinking coffee and thinking, “Hmm, it must be just about time for Mary Lee to ask for 2023 hosts.” 🙂 So I popped over here — perfect timing! I’ll take April 21, please and thank you!


  2. Appreciations for your exquisite organizing skills, Mary Lee.

    Bookseedstudio/Jan/Me would luv hosting either Jan 7 or Jan 27.

    Happy Poetry Friday! Happy All Holidays!

    Hoping your & Family’s weekend is cosy.


  3. Wow, that last six months just zoomed by. Thanks for the work you put in to wrangling this. If you find yourself with a spot you can’t fill, I’ll take it.


  4. Dang, I missed it! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season, Mary Lee. The holidays just took over and I never had a chance to sign up – so if anyone finds they cannot host, feel free to let me know and I’ll be happy to be a sub.
