Forest Has a Song & So Does Amy LV
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater (@amylvpoemfarm) as her new book, Forest Has a Song: Poems is released! Today is the day it steps out into the world! I have ordered my copy and can't wait for it to arrive.
If you haven't visited Amy's blog, The Poem Farm, you'll want to stop by. The first time I came across Amy's blog was when she was writing a poem a day for a year. Yes, for 365 days she wrote poems. At the time I was trying to post a picture each day and couldn't keep up with that. I had no idea how she came up with a poem every day, but she did. I was in awe of her perseverance --- and in awe of her poetry.
I've continued to follow Amy's poetry on her blog. At The Poem Farm, Amy not only shares her poetry, but often the thinking behind her poems. She often adds photographs and audio recordings of her poetry as well. As a teacher, I find there are so many resources available on her site. One of my favorite resources is her "find a poem" page. This page allows visitors to search for poems by topic or by poem technique.
If you are a teacher, a poet, or a writer, you may also want to stop by Sharing Our Notebooks. On this blog, Amy features a variety of people who share their notebooks. It's interesting to see the crafting process of others.
