Poetry prompts and poetry dates


Hellebore blooming

It’s spring, and poetry’s bustin’ out all over.

Here’s where I’ll be in April.

April 1 at The Station in Auburn, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Featured readers include Jane Allyn, Mary Eliza Crane, Tanya McDonald, James Rodgers, Laura L. Snyder,  and me. Plus, there’s an open mike, so bring your poems.

April 11 at fogdog gallery in Arlington, 7:00 PM

Quill & Parchment reading with Mary Eliza Crane, me, maybe others (I’ll let you know as soon as I know), definitely an open mike, and lots of fun, eye-delighting art.

This is just a taste of what’s going on. For more readings in Western Washington, see the Poetry Is Everything site.


Are you ready for NaPoWriMo?

I’ll have prompts here everyday. For some background, or to rev up and prep, see Ready, set, spring into Poetry Month prompts.

And here’s a list of some other sites that will be providing daily poetry writing prompts:

Poetic Asides
Poetry Is Everything
Poetry Superhighway

If I find others, I’ll add them to the list. And if you’re posting prompts, let me know and I’ll link to your site.
