NaPoWriMo #01 National Poetry Writing Month

April 1, 2012


NaPoWriMo #01

National Poetry Writing Month, April 2012

We Write Poems:
In celebration of the National Poetry Writing Month, NaPoWriMo, some of you may be considering writing a poem a day as is the desire and intention for some of us.  In support and recognition of that We Write Poems is offering you a place to post a link to any original poems you post onto your blog, a place where you may share your work within the greater community of us.
There will be one NaPoWriMo posting each day (today, here, this is day #1).  Simply leave the “poem specific” link to your poem in the comments below as you normally would.  The prompt or topic of your poems we are leaving up to you.  If you write a poem every day, that’s fine!  If write fewer poems than every day, that’s also fine!  We are not counting here, only providing a gathering place.

National Poetry Month was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996 to enhance and bring attention to the craft and art of poetic expression.  Writing poems is only one aspect of honoring this month.  You might wish to read their “30 Ways to Celebrate” NPM.  As such you are also invited to write directly to our posts any additional activities you’re doing about poetry this month.

Additionally, We Write Poems will continue to post our Thursday prompt and Wednesday post-your-poems posts as usual during this month.

So link your poems or comments below and have a wonderful poem month!

Poem Day number One!

    I’m not sure if I will end up with a poem a day, but I figured I would at least try on day #1. This was written for The Sunday Whirl, and it is called, lost.

    Wrote the this one while out on a bike ride with my daughter today. Pretty much had it done by the time we got back. 🙂

    First post on WWP, figured I’d jump on the NaPoWriMo bandwagon.

    Happy writing!

    Here is The Vacation, written to a wordle prompt at The Sunday Whirl. And then I wrote Communication, combining the wordle words with a “write a communication poem” prompt from Poetic Asides.

    I started with the 11 word Dutch Elfje… Not sure if I’ll do the whole month this way…

    I hope to get back and try and read others during the month. Thanks for this space 🙂

    I’m using the Writer’s Digest Prompt from Poetic Asides for each day. Thanks for letting me add a link to my website.
