NATIONAL POETRY MONTH
National Poetry Month is upon us. Can you feel the
excitement? Neither can we. We've posted our take on this
"event". Check the link below to read all about it, and
what you can do to help.

http://www.plagiarist.com/articles/?artid=10

New articles will be posted approximately once a month,
and we welcome your ideas for future articles.

-----------------------------------------------------

ALSO IN OUR "ARTICLES" SECTION
We're featuring Rainer Maria Rilke's "Letters to a Young
Poet." The first eight letters are online now - and we'll
be adding the last two over the next two Sundays.
