Happy eighteenth day of Na/GloPoWriMo, everybody!
Today’s featured participant is Sunra Rainz, who provides a moving response to Day 17’s canine prompt.
Our featured online journal for the day is Waccamaw. They’ve typically published issues twice a year, and are now up to their 26th. In their newest issue, I’ll point you to Elizabeth Muscari’s poem “Cannoli,” and John A. Nieves’ “They Named Us All John/Juan.”
Last but not least, here is today’s prompt (optional, as always). It’s based on Faisal Mohyuddin’s poem “Five Answers to the Same Question.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write your own poem that provides five answers to the same question – without ever specifically identifying the question that is being answered.
