NaPoWriMo or National Poetry Writing Month is almost upon us. April – 30 poems in 30 days.
I’m always excited by the idea of, and anticipation for, NaPoWriMo, but the reality is such that
to get in the way
and I have no time
to write what I want to say.
At the crux of the matter, dedicating a month to poetry can take different forms and look different for different folks.
You do you , and I’ll do me.
And, well be just as happy as can be!
I’ve come up with a couple poetic options that I may just be able to make work…
- WORDLE as a poetry prompt – for 30 days, complete Wordle in the AM; do a poem
- Work on poetry course.
- Blog for TPS?
Each day, in addition to examples of poems by featured participants, the site suggests a poetry prompt, and some inspiration.
From the official website:
NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.
This website is owned and operated by Maureen Thorson, a poet living in Washington, DC. Inspired by NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month), she started writing a poem a day for the month of April back in 2003, posting the poems on her blog. When other people started writing poems for April, and posting them on their own blogs, Maureen linked to them. After a few years, so many people were doing NaPoWriMo that Maureen decided to launch an independent website for the project.
