For the Poet in You!

Happy National Poetry Month! April was a big deal when I was an English major in college. We would have readings and get-togethers, even chalk the sidewalks with poetry.

Poetic Asides is hosting a month long challenge/competition for the poets out there. Write one poem every day all month, based on the given prompt. Your poem could end up in an e-book at the end of the month. But hey, even if it doesn't, you can still have the satisfaction of knowing that you wrote 30 poems in one month!

Reminds me of the NaNoWriMo challenge for novelists that happens every November. Only harder somehow. Don't think you'll be seeing this out of practice poet taking this challenge!
