So, I’m going to hold myself accountable and invite you to JOIN IN! ‘ll be providing you with a series of creative prompts to inspire your poetry writing for the month of April!
April is National Poetry Writing Month (#NaPoWriMo)! The goal of this challenge is to practice writing poetry and to have fun with it. Whether you’re a seasoned poet or a beginner, we encourage you to participate and to share your work with the world.
