Welcome to 2014.
We know that many sites feature their most popular posts at the end of the year. But here at Tweetspeak Poetry, we’re happy to buck the trends and feature our most popular posts at the beginning of the year. I smiled all the way through this list, remembering some of the fun we had here in 2013: celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Pride and Prejudice, taking our poets to work (on popsicle sticks, no less), issuing poetry dares, and reading Sonnet 18 together. That’s what we do here: play, learn, grow.
Count down our most popular posts of 2013, and join us for more in the year to come.
