We're at the top of the slide! Ready to Write?

We’re at the top of the slide! Ready to Write?

Long-time visitors to this site will remember 2007-2010, when I ran a 30 poems in 30 days event in September of each year…

I’m doing it again! I couldn’t quite get my act together for September, so I’ll be doing it in October instead, and making the appropriate change to 31 days.

The goal is simple. Write 31 poems in 31 days. I’ll be providing prompts each day, but you can write about whatever you like. The prompts are just there to help.

If you like, you can post your poem in the site comments for each day. If you prefer to post elsewhere, that’s absolutely fine, but I would appreciate any note letting me know what you are writing and taking part.

Those who follow my Facebook group Free Verse for Fun are welcome to post poems there. Some of my prompts will be form-related, but for this event I think we can wave the group standard.

See you October 1st!
