Hello, everyone! It’s March 21, and that means we have just ten days left until April. We’re getting close to NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo now!

As you gear up for April, remember that NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo isn’t the only thing going on! April is National Poetry Month, and there are a lot of ways to celebrate. You can sign up to receive a poem each day by email from the Academy of American Poets, or plan to participate in their Poem in Your Pocket Day event on April 27th. If you happen to be in New York City, you can drop in to a National Poetry Month book exhibition at the Brooklyn Public Library. You could check out poetry festivals in Miami, New Orleans, and Boston. Attend a poetry reading in your area! Can’t find one? Maybe you should organize one — find a local coffee shop or bar and put together an open mic.

Or maybe you could just write 30 poems (hee).

We’ll be back on the 29th for our three-day countdown to NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, with more resources and an early-bird prompt. In the meantime, if you’d like us to link to a website where you’ll be posting your work, you can submit the web address using the “Submit Your Site” feature above. And you can always follow our prompts and other posts on Facebook and on Twitter (@napowrimo2017).
