Happy final Sunday of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, all. It’s hard to believe that we have just a few days left to go in April!
Our featured participant today is Barbara Turney Wieland, who stepped up admirably in response to Day 25’s Schuyler-based prompt, providing us with a wonderfully-textured anatomy of a hike in the country-side.
Today’s poetry resource is a series of videos being placed online by the organizers of the New Orleans Poetry Festival. While the festival was canceled this year due to the coronavirus outbreak, poets who planned to present and attend are creating video-poems in lieu of the in-person proceedings.
And now for our prompt (optional, as always). This is one that we’ve used before, but one test of a good prompt is that you can come back to it! For this prompt, you will need to fill out, in five minutes or less, the following “Almanac Questionnaire.” Then, use your responses as to basis for a poem.
