Hello, everyone! Today begins our three-day countdown until the end of NaPoWriMo. I hope you’ve enjoyed your April!
Today’s featured journal is CSHS Quarterly, which is helmed by NaPoWriMo-ers Joseph Harker and Tessa Racked. The journal is just about to publish its second issue and is currently reading for its third. There’s only two days left in NaPoWriMo now, so if you have a journal you’d like me to feature, please let me know at napowrimonet-AT-gmail-DOT-com.
Today’s featured poet is Salon Z, where you will find carefully observed details and wonderful images, like “permitting her /
to chase the random / fox thought/ down the escalator.”
And now our (optional) prompt. Today I challenge you to find a news article, and to write a poem using (mostly, if not only) words from the article! You can repeat them, splice them, and rearrange them however you like. Although the vocabulary may be “just the facts,” your poem doesn’t have to be — it doesn’t even have to be about the subject of the news article itself. Happy writing!
