Hi MAME and LM_NET members-

**Apologies for cross-postings**

The IPL Poetry Open Mic Wiki is now open and ready for your
students' poetic contributions.

Be sure to check out the other great things in this section of
the IPL, too, like the other poetry resources, the Graphic Novels
Guide, and the Procrastinator section.

In case you're wondering what a poetry open mic is, check out
my original message below.

Poetically yours,

Marcia Mardis

Hello  MAME and LM_NET members,

I thought many of you might be interested in this great new
resources and promote it in your schools:

The Internet Public Library ( has
created a wiki for teen poets, and we're looking for teens with a
talent for words or expression who want to join.

The IPL TeenSpace Poetry Wiki is a community-friendly place
for teens to:
-post their poems
-receive peer responses
-try their hand at individual and group exercises
-add a line to our daily Exquisite Corpse
-and learn about some of the greatest poets from Antiquity until the

If teens simply want to post responses to others' work, they can do
that as well.  Anyone who wishes to contribute to the wiki must fill
out our form to join the wiki, but our hope is to eventually let the
community of users take over most of the administration of this site.
Until then, we will monitorthe wiki for any content that we deem
inappropriate, and block the wiki's abusers (and their IP addresses)
from further contributions. All members are kept anonymous, and of
course, everyone else is free to read the work and responses.
