Write a Poem a Day for 30 Days
This is no April Fool’s joke - get started April 1 and then write a poem everyday day for 30 days. The poems don’t have to rhyme, make sense, or even be good! The goal is to write every day for 30 days. Drawing a poetry mind-blank? Ask at the library for our “30 Day Poetry Prompt” list. On Saturday, April 30 – choose your favourite and join us at the library for “That’s a Poetry Wrap!”
