Hello, everyone! It’s March 1, 2016, and that means that there’s just one month until another NaPoWriMo. If you need a refresher — or are joining us for the first time — this site aims to encourage you to write a poem every day in April. We’ll post an optional prompt every day, in case you need inspiration, along with poetry-related links (this year, we’re focusing on poetry in translation) and we’ll feature a different participant every day.

How do you participate? It’s easy! Just write a poem every day during the month of April. If you’d like to post your poems on a website — your blog, tumblr, facebook page, etc., you can go ahead and submit the URL to us (using the “Submit Your Site” tab above) and we’ll include it in our compendium of websites where interested people can look at each other’s work.

You can also follow along on Twitter @napowrimo2016, or like our Facebook page.

Questions? Concerns? Check out our FAQ, or drop us a line at napowrimonet-AT-gmail-DOT-com.

      Hi Mary Ann — There’s nothing you really need to do to officially sign up. If there’s a website where you’ll be posting your poems, and you’d like us to link to it, you can submit the site information using the “Submit Your Site” page. But if you don’t have a website, that’s okay too! Just write a poem every day for the month of April and there you go — you’re participating in NaPoWriMo.

  25. […] During National Poetry Writing Month one is encouraged to write and share poetry and to seek out and read poetic works. It made me also think about poetry beyond the written word—how, in a concept or reading of an image—in what it evokes—there can also be poetry.  […]

  26. […] During  National Poetry Writing Month, while writing poetry, I have also been thinking what else might be considered poetry and poetic. I have also been reading authors’ diverse ways of expressing and experiencing the sacred. People most often turn to nature for a sense of both the poetic and the sacred. It can be found in other ways, too—even, for some, in mathematics and geometry, or in architecture and engineering such as one sees in remarkable bridges. Bridges?  You may say humorously (or not, if you have bridge phobia), “Yes, when crossing a bridge, the higher it is, the more sacredness I sense . . . about my own life!” […]
