NaPoWriMo – I have now pitched a second tent in the poetry camp!


Now I am truly excited! I have just found out about napo2013button1 I have joined and plan to hike between the manuscript on NaNoWriMo and poems everyday!


It’s not too late to join (I just managed it!) the only thing I haven’t worked out is if we work on our own material or if there are prompts. Going back to read the noticeboard!

You write whatever you want, wherever you want. Here’s what else I found out.

NaPoWriMo coincides with the National Poetry Month in the United States of America and Canada. Kudos to Maureen Thorson who created it in 2003. I have submitted the blog – I will be posting extracts of my daily poems. I may want to use them throughout the year to submit and they will need to be previous unpublished.

I look forward to reading lots of NaPoWriMo poetry and for all of you keeping it in a journal, enjoy!

23 more poets have added their sites since I started writing this post. Wow! I think they are aiming to beat 1000 participants this year. You could make that happen!
