April Mood Board and Writing Prompts

Every April, poets from all over the world participate in National Poetry Writing Month, during which they attempt to write a poem a day.

Known as NaPoWriMo, the challenge started on a writer’s blog which over the years has blossomed into an unofficial homepage for the event. Creator Maureen Thorson provides daily prompts and ideas for participating poets.

I half participated in a pandemic fog last year, but this April I’m fully committing to the challenge, pausing my normal blog schedule so I can post a poem a day.

April Writing Prompts

ink smudges
a worn dictionary
typing furiously
Photographs tucked between pages
one more couplet
your favorite muse
tea stained pages
calligraphy and ribbons
stacks of notebooks
