Rick Lupert, creator of Poetry Super Highway, a Web site filled with poetic delights, has launched PSH’s 9th Annual Great Poetry Exchange!

The mission of Poetry Super Highway is “to expose as many people to as many other people’s poetry as possible.”  The reason for the poetry exchange is to get poets from around the globe to share their poetry books. 

I love this idea and would love to see poets at all stages of their writing/publishing careers share their work. 

Since I’ve started Holly Rose Review, I’ve realized that many poets worldwide, whether just emerged in their passion for words or already diligent veterans of the craft, are humble, kind people.  What better way to keep that kindness going than to send a book and get a book in return! 

And that’s what the poetry exchange is all about.  It’s a great free exchange of poetry publications among poets worldwide.  And what better month to swap than February!

Lupert states, “It’s not a contest. There are no judges, entry fees, winners, or losers.  Last year, 92 poets participated both sending their book and receiving another poet’s book from a randomly selected other participant.”

It’d be great to see that participant amount double this year!

Check it out, swap your book, and get a book back–all for the love of poetry!

Hey, and HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY a little early.
