NaPoWriMo 2017

Public Group with 602 members

April is National Poetry Writing Month. Join us, and write a poem a day for the whole month! We’ll be supplying a fresh prompt every morning to get you writing, and an example poem to get you in the right frame of mind. Post your poems in the group, and share in the discussion! This group is open to everyone – invite your friends.

Prompts will be posted in the group (not via email). First, make sure you’re in the group, not on the Campus homepage, then click #NaPoWriMoPrompts at the top of the page to see all of the prompts.

The Line Break

Public Group with 133 members

The Line Break is a free monthly podcast about writing poetry, hosted by Ryan Van Winkle and produced by Colin Fraser. During The Line Break, Colin and Ryan will be re-visiting the archives and bringing you some of their favourite interviews and readings with poets from around the world. Blended with the archive recordings will be Ryan’s exclusive new commentary, introducing fresh themes, additional ideas, and creative provocations.

Each episode, Ryan will also offer a few ‘poetry sparks’ for you to try out, opportunities to pause the podcast and work on your own poem-writing assignments. Every episode will offer a multitude of these fun exercises that can be easily fitted into a lunch break or the commute home.

You can use this group to listen to the podcast, upload new work inspired by each episode, and share other related material. And Ryan will be popping his head in and out too, so don’t feel afraid to ask a question!
