This month is National Poetry Month so naturally I wanted this issue to focus on the art of writing poetry, prose, and also essays.  I hear so many people say that they don’t know how to write poetry and that they don’t know how to find their poetic voice so I wanted to take time to find something for those who feel like they are lacking the poetic gene.  Of course I couldn’t have an issue for National Poetry Month without including some wonderful spoken word pieces, some you may have heard of and some you may just be getting familiar with.  I hope that you enjoy this issue and if you find your poetic voice and want to send in something you’ve written the door for Write 2 Be Magazine is always open.
