Happy first Monday of Na/GloPoWriMo, everyone. I hope you’ve enjoyed your first few days of this year’s challenge.
Today’s featured participant is Anna Enbom, who brings us a glosa full of bravado. I was so happy to see how many of you really took to the glosa prompt — it was a complex one, for sure!
Our daily featured online magazine is Diagram. This is one of the grand-daddies of online journals, as it’s been published for more than 20 years. In its most recent issue, I enjoyed particularly Lucy Schiller’s “Gentle Leader.”
Finally, here’s our optional prompt! Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem . . . in the form of a poetry prompt. If that sounds silly, well, maybe it is! But it’s not without precedent. The poet Mathias Svalina has been writing surrealist prompt-poems for quite a while, posting them to Instagram. You can find examples here, and here, and here.
