10 Day Poetry Writing Challenge

poetry-magnetic-pieces10 Day Poetry Challenge

Love writing poetry? Lacking inspiration? Lacking time? Me too! I’ve decided to create this 10 day poetry challenge, so we all can inspire one another!

I’ll post a prompt every few days. You can join any time you like and work through the prompts. Post a link to your poem (not your blog home page, but your POEM).

Be sure to pop over to Facebook and join our Challenge group! There we will have different types of challenges – poetry, memoir, short stories, journaling, art, etc.

Click on Prompts above or click here to go the Challenge prompts.

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.
