get your poem on #72c (and oh, my, it’s the last day of april!)

by the Read Write Poem Staff

Today is not only a Get Your Poem On Thursday, it is the Last Day of April, the last day of National Poetry Month. It is the last day of NaPoWriMo!

Here is your chance to leave us link to your poem for today (if you have been NaPoWriMo-ing), or for the week (if you have been avoiding that whole scene). Did you listen this week? Have you been inspired by birdsong or traffic noise? Whatever you’ve heard and written about, now is the time to share it with your fellow participants!

Let us know. We’ll leave the light on this post for a week so you can comment all you want.

Please, link back here in your posts, either with a hyperlink to Read Write Poem or by using the badge in your post. Sidebar links are great but it’s important for the group’s “internet health” that you link here with every post you contribute to the project. And please add “Read Write Poem” in your tags, if you don’t mind. Search engines come up with weird stuff when they look for “RWP,” such as “Radiation Work Permit.” We’d much rather link them up with our poetry than with something from a bad sci-fi movie, or “event.”

Please take a few moments to read the the About page and our Copyrights page. If you have any questions about the project after reading through those pages, e-mail us at info (at) readwritepoem (dot) org.

For the new folks: Please take a few moments to read the About pages, including our Copyrights page. If you have any questions about the project after reading through those pages, email us at info (at) readwritepoem (dot) org.

    The Read Write Poem NaPoWriMo Anthology is still in production. Selection, placement, layout and copyediting are taking longer than anticipated. Thank you for your patience. I hope to have the piece completed in July. For those who have emailed asking if they can be included, the May 7 deadline for submission of work stands. Those who met that deadline will be included. Please check the post on this site listing who I received submissions from by that date. If you submitted your work by the May 7 deadline in accordance with our guidelines and your name is not listed, send an email to info (at) readwritepoem (dot) org.

    Remember that Friday* is the deadline for submitting work to the Read Write Poem NaPoWriMo Anthology. Check out the guidelines for submission in the main column (to the left). On May 8, we’ll post a news item listing everyone we’ve received work from. If you submitted work and your name is not on that list, please let us know. Thanks!

    *I initially said “tomorrow,” but I meant to say “Friday.”

    It’s the final week of the Read Write Poem NaPoWriMo Challenge! Just 7 days left. With that, a reminder that Read Write Poem will culminate with the anthology featuring work from those who complete the challenge. A post with details for submitting to the anthology will be published May 1. Be sure you remove any information from the site that you want preserved — such as group content and personal messages. Those elements of the site will be removed May 1 as well. The main site will remain up as an archive.
