NaPoWriMo 2019

A poem a day for the month of April

I've been writing a poem a day since April last year, when NaPoWriMo got me hooked on the practice. This round, I'm sharing my poems – here, and also on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and SoundCloud, all raw and wriggling, the way Gollum likes his fish! The pages are all set up in advance; each day's poem will pop up on its page as it's written. As with all the poems, they're #FreeForPoets if you want to riff off them for your own.

The holiday poems are now also up and typed, so you can read days 12 to 20, starting here with Day 12: a haiku.
