Growing Poets

Just a quick post today, to direct your attention to the link at left (under Line Drives) for A Poem a Day. Sounds bland, banal, innocuous enough, right? But, really, it's a revolution of sorts. Click and you will find something that tickles me to no end, a collection of student work, burgeoning poets, being grown by this organization: Writers in the Schools (WITS).

The current state of writing in our schools is one of my favorite topics (dusting off soap box, ahem) ... but I suppose I'll save that speech for another day. Suffice it to say, WITS has been added to my rapidly growing roll of heroes.
