Write about your sorrows, your wishes, your passing thoughts, your belief in anything beautiful. - Rainer Maria Rilke
Those are the marching orders for National Poetry Month which happens every April and begins today. This year commemorates "the important and enriching role that letter writing has played in the lives of poets." Listed here are 30 great ways to celebrate. And I'm delighted to say that you can request a free copy of this beautiful poster here. Writer's Digest has thrown a poetic gauntlet with its Poem-A-Day Challenge, a wonderful incentive to get the words in your heart onto paper. Starting today. Starting right now.
