Two Weeks to Go!
A very happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone, as well as a very happy Two-Weeks-Until-NaPoWriMo. We’re busy drafting prompts and researching online poetry resources to share with all of you once April comes around. If you have ideas for prompts or resources, please let us know at napowrimonet-AT-gmail-DOT-com. We’ll credit you if we use your idea!
In the meantime, one sometimes-overlooked resource for poetic inspiration is . . . Twitter. In addition to thousands of people chatting about their everyday lives, you’ll find twitter accounts for Walt Whitman (where the entirety of Leaves of Grass is being tweeted, a line at a time), the British Romantic poets, and revolutionary Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. Perhaps a perusal of these poetic accounts will help you to get your poetry muscles primed for NaPoWriMo!
