Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) April 14, 2010
April is National Poetry Month. In honor of Poetry Month, Poem Flow, the critically-acclaimed iPhone app and online poetry almanac, is offering a special promotion for educators and their classrooms: a free 100 day subscription to their world-wide, poem-of-the day community. Teachers, administrators, researchers and students are all eligible for the promotion. Coupons for the additional free subscription are found on the Poem Flow website: http://www.poemflow.com/education .
Poem Flow uniquely features a new way to experience poetry on a handheld screen. The text of each poem is presented in two different modes: as an elegant, conventional scrollable block (Portrait) and as a gently flowing reading movie (Landscape). The two modes are side-by-side, in-synch, and toggled by the holding hand. When toggled with the conventional display, a flow reveals how a poem is meant to be read. Poem Flow can be used to teach poetry, while providing a unique and delightful engagement for anyone.
Any poem on Poem Flow can be shared with anyone, with or without an Apple device. Poemflow.com provides a free online display of any poem in Poem Flow and can be used to project a poem within the classroom. Facebook, Twitter, and other social media are built-in allowing poems to be shared with the simple push of a button.
Poem Flow is curated by the Academy of American Poets and includes a thoughtful mix of classic and contemporary poetry. Classic poets include Shakespeare, Milton, Chaucer, Keats, Whitman, Dickinson, Yeats, Eliot, Frost and many others.
April 29th is National Poem-in-Your-Pocket-Day. Poem Flow is a book of poems on your iPhone or iTouch that can be read and shared at anytime.
Pricing & Availability: Poem Flow is available as a free download and includes 20 classic poems. Additional poems can be purchased for less than a penny-a-poem: 100 poems for $.99 and a full year of poems (365) for $2.99. Education coupons for a free 3-month subscription are found at http://www.poemflow.com/education .
