Poetry Month - April’s Contest

The contest theme is free writing for inspiration. Set aside a minimum of 30 minutes to free write whatever comes to mind. Then take your favorite lines, phrases, or words and turn them into a poem or the title of a poem. Use other lines for additional inspiration to write other new pieces during April for Poetry month.

It is April, so if you need ideas to get you started, consider sitting outside in a favorite spot, changing your method, such as hand writing instead of typing, change the time of day and try writing in the morning opposed to night, etc. Try something NEW for spring!
