National Poetry Month!

Welcome April, National Poetry Month!

Tomorrow I’ll publish our monthly visual poetry prompt but the remaining Mondays I’ll simply recapitulate Robert Lee Brewer’s Sunday prompt from his April Poem-A-Day Challenge. I encourage all poets to give the P.A.D. challenge a try. It’s excellent exercise and you’re practically guaranteed to get at least a couple of publishable poems out of the month. I’ll be posting my poems-a-day to my blog.

If a prompt a day isn’t enough, I’m also running a face-to-face Germination Workshop Thursday the 5th in Raleigh where I’ll offer a series of random prompts which we’ll all write to for a few minutes. I’ve done this workshop the past couple of Aprils and we usually end up with good starts to eight or nine poems. One of the poems that came out of last year’s workshop was published five months later.

And in the last week of April, Living Poetry will host a National Poetry Month Open Mic. We’re still working out the details so stay tuned.
