It’s Not Over Until It’s Over
Hello, everyone! We made it through another Na/GloPoWriMo. I hope you feel that you’ve written good poems (or at least good drafts!) and stretched yourself in your writing.
I also want to thank you for coming back to this site each year! It heartens me, especially in this particularly hard April, to see so many people gather for the love of poetry, and support one another in their efforts!
Our final featured participant for the year is Gloria D. Gonsalves, who reminds us, with her poem based on Day 30’s “returning” prompt, that a “rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.”
Na/GloPoWriMo will be back next year, of course, with more prompts and resources. In the meantime, all the posts from this year (and comments) will remain available – just as the posts and comments from prior years are preserved here. We’ll also keep the featured participants’ list up and active until early next year, when we will start collecting the new list for 2021.
In the meantime, if you just can’t get enough poetry prompts, you might enjoy the weekly prompts that Poets & Writers provides, these 30 prompts created by Kelli Russell Agodon, this list of 101 poetry prompts, or the weekly (and in April, daily) prompts provided by Robert Lee Brewer at Writer’s Digest. (UPDATE: You may also enjoy the Daily Prompt app, which will provide you with a prompt every day, direct to your iPhone).
And until next April, happy writing!
