NAPOWRIMO day #1 “Free Write”

During this month of April, which is National Poetry Writing Month (NAPOWRIMO), Writer’s Island will NOT be posting our regular weekly prompts. Our regular weekly prompts will resume Saturday, May 7th.

Instead, this is a “FREE WRITE” day, as will each day be in April. Writer’s Island is NOT suggesting a daily writing prompt during NAPOWRIMO. Please feel free to post a link here in the comments section to whatever poem or poems you may have written today.

Just as this post did today, each day of NAPOWRIMO, the “Free Write” post will open at 12:01 AM US Eastern Daylight Time. The current and the prior day’s post will remain visible on the main blog page. You can access earlier NAPOWRIMO days by selecting April in the “Past Prompts” drop down in right side bar.

Whether you are following specific daily NAPOWRIMO prompts of some sort, or just writing a poem each day (or most/some days) of NAPOWRIMO – please post a link to your poems here. At this time, I know • Poetic Asides and • Big Tent Poetry will be offering prompts for each day. But you don’t need prompts to write a poem each day.

If you wish, please consider Writer’s Island your NAPOWRIMO 2011 ‘linking hub’. Just enter your name and email address in the comments heading, and the URL of whatever poem you’ve written for that day, in the comment box. Nothing else needs to be written in the comment box if you don’t want to.

As always, if you are a first time participant, your first entry will be moderated – after your first time, there will be no more moderating. April is NAPOWRIMO – so poem away and enter your links here. Have fun…!!! 🙂

    I’m hoping to write every day, although I may not be able to post them all on time.

    Today’s was inspired by a Big Tent poetry prompt.

  4. I’m not following a prompt as such, just a theme of alphabets, sometime not even that! But will share with the hub all day…

  5. I’ve written my second poem of the day. Hope it’s okay to post here again. 🙂

  6. Here is my first, a rewrite of one I had never put out there. It fell, quite serendipitously, from a sheaf of drafts as I was cleaning my office. Happy PAD, all! Peace, Amy

  7. My heart’s not really in it, this year. Maybe. We’ll see. Meanwhile, I’m haiku stupid at: Scrambled, Not Fried

  8. Here’s my April 1st NaPoWriMo poem: Haze

    I just discovered this lovely island… I am over at Poetic Asides following the Poem-A-Day Prompts as I have for the past few years. I usually write more than a few a day. Website needs some cleaning up, but did want to get the poems in before I fell too far behind! Look forward to widening my circle. Hope you enjoy.


  11. Prompt was “Maybe —-” wrote a poem about May Bea a young girl left to tend a rose garden for a lifetime
