Poetry and social media join forces once again in April. Tell Me More celebrates National Poetry Month with its 3rd annual Muses and Metaphor series. We’ll feature poems exchanged via Twitter by NPR fans — always in 140 characters or fewer. Tweet your poem using the hashtag: #TMMPoetry.
In the past two seasons, we’ve had hundreds of responses, and we’ve heard poetic tweets from a schoolteacher in Omaha, Nebraska; middle school students from Washington, DC; an Egyptian-American poet in Washington, D.C.; a producer/director in Sydney, Australia; and a blogger from Phoenixville, PA.
You can read some our favorites from last year here, stop by our Storify here, or listen to the example below.
