Poetry Express
Activities, tips, and techniques for new poets or experienced.

This is a great resource for teachers looking for ideas to interest their students in poetry writing.
The site is well designed with a clean consistent layout and nice graphics.
Navigation is simple, with links to the major areas on the front page. All subsequent pages have a top and a bottom navigation menu.
If you are looking for a way to involve your students in poetry writing or for ways to share and improve your own work, poetryexpress may have just what you need. Fifteen poems you can write now would be a welcome addition to any teacher's bag of writing tricks. Tap into students' creativity with these examples and thought-provoking activities such as Talk to Animals (and Stars), Take a Snapshot, and Collect Fabulous Realities. The site also provides information and tips for making, revising, sharing, and publishing the work, as well as e-Muse, where students can fill in the blanks and create a poem for inspiration.
