National Poetry Writing Month begins tomorrow #NaPoWriMo

Poem

This little poem
is very, very bad.
It doesn’t rhyme right—
how sad.
It has no feet,
nor iambic stress.
I think it’s freaking out
in a little blue dress.
It makes no sense
and has no style.
Maybe I should put it away
for awhile.

****

I’m freaking out a little (or maybe a lot).

I’ll be posting at my forum: Autumn Sky Poetry Forum. You’re welcome to join us. Register, and send me a message via Facebook or email so I know to approve your membership request.

NaPoWriMo began here: http://www.napowrimo.net

NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.

This website is owned and operated by Maureen Thorson, a poet living in Washington, DC. Inspired by NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month), she started writing a poem a day for the month of April back in 2003, posting the poems on her blog. When other people started writing poems for April, and posting them on their own blogs, Maureen linked to them. After a few years, so many people were doing NaPoWriMo that Maureen decided to launch an independent website for the project.

Let the insanity begin!

NaPoWriMo 2014 (egads!)

napowrimo 2014

It’s that time of year again: flowers, singing birds, snow… WAIT. What? Snow? No way, it’s almost April! It’s almost time to do the write-a-poem-a-day-every-day-for-a-whole-month thing that overtakes so many of us again and again, year after year. I almost missed it! I thought it was still WINTER.

Ahem.

If you would like to participate in National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), I have set up an online workshop forum where you can post your daily poems, privately, in community with all the other crazy poets who think they can fool the Muse into a giant burst of creativity. If you’d like to come and play with us, CLICK HERE and register.

Also, please send me an email chrissiemkl AT gmail DOT com or a note via FaceBook so that I know you are a real human and not a spambot from hell. Please include your name so I know who you are when I hover my mouse pointer over the approve/disapprove button. I only approve membership for real actual human beings.

That is all.
