It’s April, National Poetry Month. That means Writer’s Digest’s Robert Lee Brewer is once again hosting the Poem a Day challenge. Each day this month, he will give a prompt at his Poetic Asides site. You can use it or write something else, but the idea is to write a poem every day. Writers can share their poems with each other in the comments section or just keep them to themselves. I have tried this several times, finishing twice. Brewer also does a Poem a Day challenge in November that leads to a chapbook competition. The rest of the year, he offers prompts on Wednesdays and lots of articles about poetry. Give it a try. There’s nothing to lose and new poems to gain.
Go write something!
