Reason for signing up:

I have been wanting to do Lexington Poetry Month since I heard about it in my sophomore year of college. I just always hesitate because I worry about... a lot of things. However, some of my students publicized their writing this year for a contest and they have inspired me to publicize my work. They are the reason I'm signing up.
