April is the United States National Poetry Month. My poet friends like to get together every April to do a Poem-a-day challenge. The idea is to write a poem each day for the month of April and email it to the other group participants.
It's not an easy task but each time I have participated, I find a handful of poems worth re-working, editing and submitting.
This month, I take the time to read poetry that I love (I'll be tweeting my favs over @WriterDonaldson), write poetry that stretches my creative muscles and to cheer on my fellow Poem-a-day poets. In addition to my regular projects (blogging and my novels), I'll be writing one poem each day.
Let's be honest, sometimes the creative well runs dry. Want to give me some inspiration or a prompt? Want me to write a poem about you or an ode to something you love? Shoot me an email at Danielle (at) WriterDanielleDonaldson.com or in the contact form below. Have a favorite poem that you want to share? Hit me up in the comments!
