PerPoTues '10 kicks off in one week!

2010's Perfectly Poetical Tuesdays begin next week! If you're new, this is a great time to start!

Here's how it works:

  • Perfectly Poetical Tuesday or PerPoTues is hosted here the second Tuesday of each month.
  • It's about having fun creating original poetry.
  • Each PerPoTues features a different poetic theme - either an actual poetic form (i.e. limerick) or poems in the style of a famous poet (i.e. Dr. Seuss).
  • You don't have to follow poetic forms to the letter. As long as your poem somewhat resembles the theme, you can take some poetic license!
  • The topic is up to you. (Just please keep it family-friendly, as we do have kids that participate with their parents.)
  • You write a poem in that month's style and link to my PerPoTues post.
  • Then you come back to the main post, leave a comment and a link, and check out other people's poems.
  • Each month I'll announce the style for the next month. For example, December's PerPoTues post said you get to pick the style for January!
Also, feel free to use one of these nifty buttons if you'd like.

If you have questions, just let me know.
