NaPoWriMo April Poem-A-Day

Poetry Contest
April is the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo). This contest is for all who want to practice writing a poem a day to celebrate poetry!

Come join in the fun! Since this contest is a collection of poems, you need to first create a book of poetry. Keep writing a poem each day as a new chapter.

It is helpful to choose a theme to focus on, or you can get topic prompts from:

You can post your prologue (chapter 0) on March 31. If you get behind, try to catch up by April 30. Since this is for 30 poems, the entry fee is a little higher.

If you join after April 1, please be sure to end up with 30 poems in your book by April 30.

Most of all, have fun!

The contest winner will win half of the prize pool of 180.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Sunday, May 2, 2021.
