Hello, everyone. I hope you’re ready for the seventeenth day of Na/GloPoWriMo because, for better or worse, that’s where we are!
Our featured participant for the day is Poem Dive, where you’ll find a birthday-gift in the form of a poem responding to our curtal sonnet prompt
Today’s featured online journal is Plume, which has published more than 120 issues since 2011! All of their archives are available, too, making Plume’s website a great place to discover new-to-you poets and poems. From their latest issue, I’ll point you toward David Wojahn’s “Threnody: December 2020” and Alan Shapiro’s “Sweet Nothings.”
And now here’s our daily (optional) prompt. This is a fun one – it’s a prompt developed by the comic artist Lynda Barry, and it asks you to think about dogs you have known, seen, or heard about, and then use them as a springboard into wherever they take you.
