Please Update Your Link to Our Blog!

3 Apr

Thank you so much for following our blog! We’ve been making a few updates behind the scenes and now we have a new link address:

http://www.EuropeanPaper.com/Blog

We appreciate any and all help you can give us by switching your own links to the new URL (if you have one on your blog or website) and getting the word out to others.

(And no worries if you try to go to the old link, it will redirect you back here. But while the redirect is in place, the new URL is crucial to start using.)

Thanks to all our fans and followers!

National Poetry Month

3 Apr

Created in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets, National Poetry Month is celebrated every April to increase awareness of poetry. Everyone is invited to participate and the Academy galvanizes teacher, librarians, publishers and many more literary-inspired groups to join in the celebration! Find a poetry event near you via the Academy’s site, browse through workshops and interviews on the Scholastic Teachers site, or get inspired by the Favorite Poem Project. Even the New York Times has some suggestions of how to celebrate the month!
