Hello Thought Catalog community!!
April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate we’re inviting you to join us in writing a poem a day. It doesn’t have to be good! It’s just a commitment to spend a few minutes (or more) each day alone with you and your creativity and a pen (or a thumb and iNotes). You can keep your poems as a personal project or submit them to be published on Thought Catalog via this link.
Here are some things you might get out of writing a poem a day:
- Have a creative output for your relationship/work/trump related angst
- Make new friends! (share your work with #nanopomo)
- Write something you’re proud of (if you do something every day for a month, this will happen)
If you need some inspiration, read some ~ extremely talented ~ poets we’ve published on TC:
