It’s March 1, and you know what that means! There’s just one month to go until National Poetry Writing Month (or, for our international participants, Global Poetry Writing Month).

If it’s your first time here, welcome! The FAQ will give you the details, but in brief, this site provides encouragement, support, and community for people who want to try to write a poem a day for the month of April. Each day during April, we’ll post an (optional) prompt to help get your creative juices flowing! We’ll also feature a participant each day, provide a bonus poetry-related feature daily — this year, we’ll be linking to interviews with poets — and, if you’ll be posting your poems to a website of some kind, we’ll link to that website. Just use the “Submit Your Site” form.

If you’re an old hand at NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, welcome back! Our site submission form is back up, and waiting for your links.

As we get closer to April 1, we’ll be checking in weekly (and in the last week, more like daily) with poetry-related links, updates, and general cheerleading. You can also follow our prompts and other posts on Facebook and on Twitter (@napowrimo2017).

In the meantime, if you have questions, comments, or ideas for prompts, please email us at napowrimonet-AT-gmail-com.
