"Inspiring Children to #ThinkPoetry Beyond #NationalPoetryMonth"

On April 29, 2019, Carol Varsalona, moderator of #NYEDChat brought together a group of her fellow #PoetryFriday #poets to form a dynamic team from different parts of the United States to Australia. Kathryn Apel, Linda Baie, Michelle H. Barnes, Irene Latham, Margaret Simon, Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, Janet Wong, and Christie Wyman joined Carol as co-moderators on a spontaneous request to run this chat as a near end to #NationalPoetryMonth. Each poet, committed to a specific task, and from their dedicated energy to #ThinkPoetry spread #poetrylove across the Twittersphere.
