National Poetry Month is a good excuse for people across America to embrace their creepy poem-obsession. You can read the official description on http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/41 . Every April, participants celebrate by writing, reading and sharing poetry—through public events like open-mic nights, and even quirky little idea like the poem-in-your-pocket day on April 26th.
Some people choose to do the 30-day poetry challenge of NaPoWriMo (like NaNoWriMo, only less work ). http://www.napowrimo.net/ This event is not run by the Office of Letters and Lights—OLL is busy running Screnzy in April—but it’s just as rewarding and interactive.
*cough* Okay, fine. I’ve never done it. But for the past few years I’ve been meaning to, so I think it’s time WHO’S WITH ME???
