April – NaPoWriMo Challenge
- April is National Poetry Writing Month, and the NaPoWriMo Challenge. The challenge is to write 30 poems in 30 days OR choose a number that works for you. The point is quantity over quality and to just write some poetry.
- You can participate by posting your poems to the blog comments each day or emailing them all to me at the end of the month. There will be prompts on the blog every day that you can write to, or you can write whatever you like.
- Participation Points = 25
- To officially participate, email me.
- We’ve wrapped everything up. 20 members participated. Together they donated 592 books and volunteered 40 hours at libraries and schools in various literary related services. WOOHOO!
