National Poetry Writing Month
NaPoWriMo , or National Poetry Writing Month, is back!
NaPoWriMo is an annual project in which participants write a poem each day in April. It unfolds in the tradition of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, held in November) and motivates, inspires, and engages poets of all levels, genres, and backgrounds.
While a poem a day is your ultimate goal, there’s really no “right” way to participate. Start today and keep at it, and experiment as you see fit. Focus entirely on sonnets, or experiment with free verse. Participate on your own, or collaborate with others. Publish on your blog, or experiment offline.
Ideas to get started
- Publish poems each day, focusing on a different genre each week.
- Handwrite poems in a journal, for your eyes only.
- Start a collective with others, plan themes for April, and publish poems on your own blogs focused on these themes.
- Create a new blog or group site specifically for this monthly challenge.
