NaPoWriMo is COMING ~ Warm Up Here

Standard

NaPoWriMo certainly gets to the heart of things. I enjoy April every year for the gifts of words and focus on poetry. I give myself permission to write a lot of rubbish, but every year there are a handful of poems created with a glow, many of these go on to be published in magazines, anthologies and my own collections.

I have collated this post to link to previous NaPo posts on the blog. So you won’t have to wait until tomorrow to warm up!

Last year’s warm up post – including some of the history of NaPoWriMo (rebranded GloPoWriMo – as it is now (and has been for a while) a Global phenomenon. I just can’t switch to calling it GloPo).

NaPoWriMo Warming Up

There will be some 2022 Early Bird posts arriving at the NaPo site over the next couple of days. I know they start live posting on the 15th March. Here’s a link to the 2020 Early Bird writing prompts.

You can always search for more – my NaPoWriMo posts go back to 2014 and include a daily thread for every year.

I wish you well with your writing and look forward to the 15th, when the REAL magic starts!

NaPoWriMo is COMING!

And I LOVE the vibrant ‘WAKE UP’ turquoise of this year’s banners!

Every year since 2014 I have participated in Napowrimo and many other affiliated poetry groups for the month of April. National Poetry Month (US). And this year I have some plans of my own… watch this space.

So with that Christmas Eve excited feeling I have added AWF to participating sites as I do every year, I have saved my tags and dreamt up the pre-Napo posts for this site. For now head on over to Maureen Thorson’s site and get excited yourselves!
