In four days, the 2021 November Poem-A-Day Challenge will begin. If you enjoy writing poetry or if you want to kickstart your budding poetry interests, I encourage you to join thousands of poets around the world in this unique challenge. Robert Lee Brewer posts a writing prompt each morning and you as the poet, write your poem then post it on the PAD forum. All the rules and guidelines are found at this link.
When my crocuses and hostas begin poking out of the garden, I know it’s time for the APRIL Poem-a-Day Challenge. This year as last year, Robert Brewer at Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides is offering a pre-poeming countdown, counting down the 10 days leading up to the 2021 April Poem-A-Day Challenge.
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Let’s (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.
“The Waltmarie is a 10-line form of any subject. The even-numbered lines are 2 syllables, and must form their own poem when read separately. The odd-numbered lines are longer, with no syllable count restrictions. That’s it! This new form is loads of fun, but is also quite challenging.”
