Highlighting Poets for National Poetry Month – Week 1

CTU Prompt 2016It has only been a few days into National Poetry Month with our #ctuwritingprompt 30 day challenge, and we have had such amazing responses from so many. We are excited that there are 4 more full weeks to go, so keep on writing that poetry.

As a reminder, please use the hashtag above so that we are able to find your poems on social media or post them under CTU’s daily “Inspiration Call” posts on Facebook.

Take a look at some of our favorites poems so far. Please check out their pages and support a poet today.

Day 1

The word prompt was FOOL and @bellalupa’s “Chameleon Comedian” deserves an encore of its own delving into the sad and desolate life of a jester, while @lady_loch refused to be fooled by nature’s healing power.

It’s not too late to start the challenge. There are still many more days and fun topics to tackle. And you don’t have to stop at one poem a day. The goal is to be inspired to write as much as you want.

Join our National Poetry Month challenge here.
