National Poetry Month is the perfect opportunity to both read and write poetry with abandon!
Visit poets.org to read a previously unpublished poem by a contemporary poet during each day in April. Also check out their 30 Ways to Celebrate National Poetry Month.
I also recommend Poetry Foundation’s Poem of the Day (year-round).
Writer’s Digest’s April Poem-A-Day Challenge. Daily prompts are provided, with encouraging samples. Post your poems in the comments if you want to share and potentially receive feedback or comments. Or just keep them in your journal!
NaPoWriMo. National Poetry Writing Month is inspired by NaNoWriMo, and hosted by Maureen Thorson, a poet living in Washington DC. Use the daily prompts and link to your blog or website if you’d like to share your poetry.
CREATE: If you want some structured parameters to start you off, try out this new Singaporean poetic form: the coronasonnet.
