Poetry Challenge

If you love to write poetry, you love a good poetry challenge, and you are missing April's NaPoWriMo then you are in the right place. There are now multiple Novel writing months it is past time we added another Poetry month. October is a great time to challenge poets to a poem a day for thirty one days.

It is easy to join us and play along, all you have to do is link your blog to our OctPoWriMo link up, come back in October to check out our daily prompt posts (which are optional to use or find your own inspiration), write a poem on your blog daily during October (or at least try to), come back to visit others linked up and share comments along the way. If you don't have a blog, you can share it on Facebook in the Writing Poetry Group, on Instagram with the hashtag #OctPoWriMo and/or you can share #Micropoetry on Twitter. You can grab the badge on this page or go to Poetry Badges to choose another and link it back to here to let others know about the challenge.

If you need inspiration you can check out our Daily Poetry Prompts that we will share on the OctPoWriMo blog but you can write from your own inspiration as well. Visit at least a few of your Poetry neighbors (a couple links before and/or after your links and if you are at the end go back to the beginning). Make sure you tweet with the hashtag #OctPoWriMo to let everyone know when you have a new poem posted!

It is that simple. We begin sharing poetry tips and more September 1st through September 30th. We begin OctPoWriMo poetry prompts on October 1st through October 31st. We look forward to reading and sharing poetry with you!
