Tip for writers.
The evolution of the typewriter, beautiful illustration. Who remembers using one of these to write a school paper?
Writing is an endurance sport, one best served by a generous supply of pancakes and coffee, served piping hot. Let’s make an IHOP writer’s residency. Immediately.

It’s always the perfect time to write.

Words Dance Publishing is teaming up with Writer’s Digest’s Poetic Asides blog for NaPoWriMo this year & one of YOUR POEMS could end up being in the book above!

I’ve been taking part in Robert’s Poem-a-Day challenges with prompts for years, so when he approached me about partnering up with him on this I was like, OHHELLYES! Please & Thank you!
I love these challenges because they get me poeming every day. Plus, I really dig reading what others come up with using the same prompt, the camaraderie that comes with doing this, the sense of community… ALL. GOOD. STUFF.
If you’ve never participated in a Poem-A-Day challenge on the Poetic Asides blog, basically: Robert gives us prompt every day, shares a poem he wrote using the prompt & after you write your poem you can share it in the comments on the blog post &/or share it on your personal blog or keep it to yourself. (Please hop over there to READ THE FULL GUIDELINES!)
You’re going to want to post your poems in the comments on the Poetic Asides blog this year though, because alongside the prompt, the book above will house the top poem from each day in it! Don’t worry though, if you’d rather not post your poems on the blog or if one of your poems isn’t chosen, there will be space inside the book for you to add in all 30 of your poems alongside the prompt… giving you something tangible for an otherwise intangible experience!
I want to stress that you DO NOT have to buy the book to participate in this challenge but if you take part in the challenge & one of your poems is chosen to be in the book… you will get a FREE contributor’s copy! What’s not to love?!
If you do want the book though, there will be more details shared about preordering the book in April but we’re excited, can you tell?!
Can’t wait to start poeming it up with you in April! Will you be there?!
We’ll love you forever if you gave this a wee signal boost!!! THANK YOU! <3
I have also participated in Robert Brewer’s PAD before and am excited to see this exciting addition to the challenge. Even if you do not write a poem everyday (though that is the fun part of the challenge!) every writer can benefit from stretching some poetic muscles this Spring. Write on!
