Poem a Day Challenge Recap

My computer played an April Fools joke on me. It lead me to believe week one prompts for the Poem a Day Challenge had posted. I apologize for this inconvenience. My computer has been punished.

April is National Poetry Month and what better way to celebrate than writing a poem a day. This challenge is about having fun with poetry. Don’t worry about perfectly finished drafts. Just get rough drafts out daily. You’ll have May to edit them.

Here are some of the highlights

  • You do not have to register anywhere to participate in the challenge.
  • There will be  prompts (Which you can use or lump) on our Blog.
  • Post your poem drafts to the Starving Writer Blog under the prompt that inspired it. If you chose to lump the prompt simply post to the day you wrote it.
  • The challenge will begin April 1st and conclude on May 1st
  • Beginning May 1st edit and revise your poems for submission.
  • June 1st start submitting to magazines and publishers.
  • Let us know when you’ve sold your work.
  • Good Luck and may all your poems be published.
