Happy Sunday, everyone, and welcome back for the sixteenth day of Na/GloPoWriMo.

Our featured participant today is 7eyedwonder, who brings us a sly take on an old French teacher in response to Day 15’s invitation to consider troubling heroes.

Today’s resource is Poetry Northwest’s online collection of essays exploring different poets, craft elements, and styles of poetry.

And now, without further ado, our optional daily prompt, once again pulled from our archives. Today’s prompt is a poem of negation – yes (or maybe, no), I challenge you to write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not, or not like. For example, if you chose a whale as the topic of your poem, you might have lines like “It does not settle down in trees at night, cooing/Nor will it fit in your hand.”

Happy writing!
