Happy Sunday, everyone!
Our featured participant today is Linda Kruschke’s Blog, where the clerihew for Day 25 rather cleverly forces you to complete the final rhyme.
Today’s featured poetry resource is The Volta, where you’ll find new poems, video poems, interviews, craft and critical essays, reviews, and more!
I also wanted to give a shout-out today to a project created by Gloria D. Gonsalves, who has been participating in NaPoWriMo for many years. It’s World Children’s Poetry Day, taking place this year on October 3. Keep your eye on the website as autumn rolls around! Perhaps you might consider organizing an event in your community?
And now, for our prompt (optional, as always). Our last two prompts have been squarely in the silly zone – this one should give some scope to both the serious-minded and the silly among you. Today, I challenge you to write a persona poem – a poem in the voice of someone else. Your persona could be a mythological or fictional character, a historical figure, or even an inanimate object. Need some examples? Check out this persona-poem-themed issue of Poemeleon from a few years back.
