Poetry at Play

Poetry at Play is a daily blog created by Poetry Advocates for Children and Young Adults (PACYA),  launched in the fall of 2011, is a grassroots, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting poetry for every age group . Its growing membership is a combination of poets, authors, teachers, students, scholars, editors, librarians, booksellers, and readers of every age from around the world.

PACYA is run by a team of 17 advisors who will serve from 2011-2013.

The organization is dedicated to:

*Speaking out for the need to engage with poetry at every age level—and addressing the challenges of doing so

*Creating a global online hub for news, reviews, essays, and interviews; learning/scholarly resources; communication and networking; audiovisual archives; collaborative projects; and more

*Organizing and promoting readings, awards, workshops, and conferences in North America and internationally

To learn more about PACYA, visit its blog at poetryadvocates.wordpress.com.  You’ll find a poet of the week, on-line and book resources, and a community of like-minded people who believe in the power of poetry.  Join today, and spread the word.
