Magic Poetry Blimp Flyer

April 2011<br /><br />To All Kids, Teachers and Friends -<br /><br />Greetings from The Magical Poetry Blimp! The Blimp is a fantasy vehicle – and we hope that you will hop aboard and zip along with us, as you turn the pages (virtually or physically) of The Magical Poetry Blimp Pilot's Guide.<br /><br />In my last months as Poet Laureate of California, I am seeking to fulfill my charge from the governor's office – to create a state-wide poetry project capable of reaching communities where poetry might not be readily available. Many schools have little curriculum time allocated for the arts in this time of economic crisis – and less time for the crucial art of Poetry. Poetry (+ reading and writing and absorbing poems) helps kids learn to think and remember and appreciate the beauty and power of words.<br /><br /><em>The Magical Poetry Blimp Pilot's Guide</em> (downloadable for free at <a href="http://magicalpoetryblimp.org" target="_blank">magicalpoetryblimp.org</a>!) is a way to make poetry – its rhyme and forms and always-remembered lines – readily available to all who want to encounter poetry, to read and write and learn it by heart – plus take off on the Blimp (the Imagination) and have a wonderful time! We hope the guide will be useful to students from ages 7-12 or so (depending on their reading level).<br /><br />This entertaining, educational, interactive Guide is all yours – thanks to all of the writers who contributed chapters – and to the amazing designer/contributor Diana Arterian, the illustrious illustrator Rick Cortez and web-wizard Dave Howard – and so many others, who've fueled the Blimp and piloted it to the skies!<br /><br />Please spread the word about the Blimp, so more students can learn, write and share sonnets, haikus, and ballads in the near future! We hope that you will hop aboard and zip along with us, as you turn the pages (virtually or physically) of The Magical Poetry Blimp Pilot's Guide.<br /><br />Enjoy - and please send us feedback about the Guide on our <a href="http://magicalpoetryblimp.org" target="_blank">website</a> - we'd love to hear from you!<br /><br />- Carol Muske-Dukes, California Poet Laureate<br /><br /><a href="eblast.png" target="_blank"><img src="eblast.png" width="300" border=1></a>
