Poetry Writing Challenges

Congratulations, you made it all the way to the end of OctPoWriMo 2014! It has been a wonderful journey this year from September's poetry tips through October's poetry prompts. Some of you have been with us every single day and some of you popped in when your schedule permitted.

You shared your poems - your heart, your life, your experiences - with us and they have touched our hearts. We have one last prompt for you and we look forward to reading your poems.

Poetry Prompts:

What have you learned from this journey? Did you stretch in unexpected ways? Did you take it easy during OctPoWriMo compared to years past?  Free write about your OctPoWriMo experience.

Special thanks to the other contributors of OctPoWriMo who shared their creativity and love of poetry with us.

Julie Jordan Scott - You can find creating her literary themed mixed media art every day during November.

Amy Phelps McGrath - Will be participating in NaNoWriMo during the month of November and hopefully she will keep us updated on her blog about how things are going for her.

Tamara Woods - Will also be participating in NaNoWriMo but has decided to share her experiences through vlogs as she tries to stay sane during the challenge.

You can find me, Morgan Dragonwillow, sharing writing prompts and inspiration on Mondays and Wednesdays over on my blog.

It has been a pleasure and an honor sharing our love of poetry with you.

  4. Thanks team OctPoWriMo! You did a lot of work, and provided a fantastic experience for lots of people. I know people who worked with the prompts but never shared what they wrote here, so I know for a fact that the effect is even bigger than what we can see.

    I wrote a happy shout out to you on my post for today, and to all the writers and to all the readers. Everybody has been fabulous!

    1. Thank you Angela, I'm so pleased that you enjoyed it so much! Thanks for the shout out and I hope to see you again next year!
