National Poetry Month Feature
I chose April to feature the Poetry Anthology – Exploration, because April is National Poetry Writing Month. The idea behind NaPoWriMo is simply to encourage people to write poetry. It coincides with National Poetry Month, which celebrates poetry in all its forms.
NaPoWriMo is also a poetry writing challenge, where poets are asked to write thirty poems – or one per day – during the month of April. Quite a few GA members have taken up this challenge over the years and completed it successfully. The challenge itself acknowledges that not all poems written for the challenge will be masterpieces; the important thing to is write – and explore!
I chose the theme “Exploration” for the Poetry Anthology because it’s a broad theme open to interpretation, and also to hopefully encourage site authors and poets to explore the world of poetry. Whether you are new to poetry and want to try writing it for the first time, or a seasoned poet wanting to explore new forms, all are welcome to participate!
We already have some exciting collections of poetry in the works, so whether you have one poem to contribute or twenty, bring it on!
