You Can Now Read Poetry Breakfast on Facebook

Yup, that’s right. You can read all of Poetry Breakfast on Facebook now.  Thanks to a cool little app we were able to embed the entire Poetry Breakfast site onto our Facebook page.

Just visit the Poetry Breakfast Page at:

and click on the blue box that says “Read Poetry Breakfast on Facebook.”

Don’t worry, you’ll still find everything here at wordpress too.  We haven’t moved.  We’ve just made the site available on Facebook too.

Now you can catch your morning poem without leaving Facebook.

You can easily share your favorite morning poems with all your friends.

And hopefully, this convenient addition to Facebook will help give our featured morning poets the exposure they deserve!
