That poem-a-day business is such a circus!

March 23, 2011

Yup! It is! Don’t you love it? Here’s a reminder (a re-post) of what we’re planning for April, which is National Poetry Month:

Some people love writing a poem-a-day in April, and some people hate it. Some people stick with what they’ve been doing, and some people seek new inspiration and radical challenges. Whatever you intend to do, we will be right here on our regular Monday-prompt / Friday-poems schedule.

As a special treat, in case you want to write a poem-a-day using Big Tent prompts, our weekly prompts from March 28 through April 25 will include seven choices.* Write to them, one each day, if you like. And if you prefer to ignore all the poem-a-day madness and just want to keep doing what you’re doing, pick one from the list and go with it!

Wherever you get your prompts and inspiration for April (there are so many wonderful choices!), be sure to come by on Fridays to share one of your gems from the week. We’d love to stay connected with you!

Questions? Leave them here. We’ll do our best to answer them. (But wait! The answers may already be out there. Go see our original discussion and see if you can find what you’re looking for.)

*For you math prodigies out there, that’s 35 prompts. Yes, we know there are only 30 days in April. Keep the extras. No charge. It’ll be our little secret.

    Bring on the April! Poem a day sounds like just what I need to shake off the shackles of Winter and leap and frolic into spring!!!

    Instead of writing a crappy poem everyday why not write one great poem in April, probably better than what you’ve done in March, or February, or January ….
