Highlighting Poets for National Poetry Month – Week 5

ctu-prompt-2016Don’t be too sad about the end of National Poetry Month. You can write poetry anytime of the year. And if you need some help, CTU has daily prompts Monday through Friday to get you inspired. We have a variety of topics that are randomly selected for each day: picture prompts, poetry styles, flow writing, and much more. On the weekends, we like to post a fun engaging post to get anyone to participate. These can include: a favorite book or movie, a one sentence picture prompt, or a question of the day. We will also be introducing many writing contests throughout the year, so make sure our page alerts are at the top of your newsfeed to keep you updated. We are always ready to stimulate the mind and read your amazing work every day.

As usual, it has been another wonderful week of fantastic poetry. We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all the poets who participated this year! We hope everyone continues to write and find other ways to keep motivated.

Check out our favorites from the final week, and please take a moment to look at each writer’s page:

Keep those pens flowing writers. National Poetry Month will be here again in 12 months, but look out for many more challenges to boost those writing skills. Search the hashtags #writingprompt or #writingchallenge as there are so many on social media to choose from.
