NaPoWriMo - 2017

Every year at this time, the international poetry community takes part in NaPoWriMo — National Poetry Writing Month.

"National" is now an inaccuracy, it happens everywhere, and the idea is to write one poem a day, every day, for the whole of April.  They don't have to be great poems, or polished, or even necessarily complete...  there just has to be something poem-like that you can show to your fellow poets.

Many of my favourite efforts originate from this exercise, like this or this so I make a point of trying to participate every year.

This year I think I'll do it naked — by which I mean I'll post the poems here, unedited, as I turn them out.

Expect a poem for every day, not always on the day in question, I do have a life and it would be unrealistic not to allow a little give and take, but expect 30 brand new poems in roughly the next 30 days.

I have the first two already, watch this space...
