Happy (Inter)National Poetry Month!

What better time of year than spring, to kick off a month-long celebration of poetry around the world? You can find out more about National Poetry Month over at poets.org. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can also join the other National Poetry WRITING Month (NaPoWriMo) participants who have committed to writing a poem a day for 30 days. More info (including daily prompts for inspiriation) can be found over at Read Write Poem.

We’ll be starting up the regular weekly writing prompts again this Thursday, in case you need that little extra nudge of inspiriation.

If you’re part of NaPoWriMo this year, feel free to post links to your daily poems in the comments section of any of our April posts. I’ll be participating in NaPoWriMo over on the Mimosa Effect. Happy poeming, all!

    My first poem for April is up:

    when holding on becomes too hard

    Includes a bunch of the prompt words and themes from March, as well as today’s ReadWritePoem prompt “metaphor”.
