Meeting Next Week

Our next meeting is Thursday, April 3, 7-8pm EST.

During this meeting we will kick of the NaPoWriMo challenge. April is all about poetry!
• It’s the NaPoWriMo Challenge! Write 30 poems in 30 days! It’s not about quality, it’s about quantity. Even if you don’t normally write poetry, you should participate in this great exercise!
• Email Mrs. Emery if you want to participate.
• Poems due by April 30th.
• The ultimate challenge is 30 poems, however you can set your goal to be whatever you want and still participate. Whether you write 1 poem or 25, that’s still great!
• Post your poem each day to the blog.
• There will be a prompt on the blog every day. You can respond to the prompt, or post your own poem.
• If you are participating, you need to post your poems on the blog for them to count. However you can still participate on your own if you don’t want to post your poems to the blog.

If you’re not able to join us this week, I will send out information about the assignment.
