Extra Resources
Copyright©2008 by Violet Nesdoly

This is our second column in Violet's "Poet's Classroom" series.

My column, Accessible Poetry and Poets, only brushes the surface of available resources. If you're interested in reading more examples of accessible poets or in listening to live readings, the following resources may be of interest.

Great examples of accessible poets and poetry are also found right here in the Gallery at Utmost Christian Writers.
