It’s only a month away, and I’m already excited about National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo). Similar to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), NaPoWriMo is a poetry writing challenge, encouraging poets to write a poem a day.
In celebration of poetry, I plan to share at least a poem a day in April. Many will be poems I’ve written, but I’ve invited a few poets to share their work too. In addition, I will be sharing links to some of my favorite poems I’ve found on other blogs, to help spread the love of poetry and hopefully introduce people to writers they may not have had the pleasure of reading yet.
I also have been gathering a few links to writing prompts, especially those geared toward poetry, so if you have any favorite sites with prompts, please share them in the comments and I’ll try to include them.
I hope it will be a month to share the love of poetry, expose people to different writers, and encourage people to give poetry a try, even if they’ve never written it before.
Have a beautiful day!
Tell me about some of your favorite poets and poems. If you already write poetry, I’d love to hear about what draws you to poetry and why you write it.
