NaPoWriMo 2018

Private Group with 293 members

Welcome to #NaPoWriMo 2018 with the Poetry School.

Just like last year, we’ll be providing an inspiring writing prompt every day of April, which is National (and now World!) Poetry Writing Month.

Here’s how it works:

The prompts will be posted daily in this Campus group (note: not via email!). Just click #NaPoWriMoPrompts, underneath the ‘Say Something’ box, to go directly to the day’s prompt.

We encourage you to post your poems in the group, and share in the discussion! The group is open to everyone, so invite your friends. (Want help posting? Click #FAQs).

IMPORTANT NOTES:

Don’t click the rather tempting ‘Leave Group’ button as this will permanently remove you from the group!

Try to avoid using your own hashtags (#) as it clutters the hashtag menu at the top.

Please have a read of the #FAQs (next to #NaPoWriMoPrompts) before you get started!

Poetry & Visual Art

Private Group with 26 members

This is a Campus group associated with Tamar Yoseloff’s Poetry & Visual Art courses, a place for course members to share work, resources and conversation.

Course description: Poets have long drawn inspiration from painters and sculptors; with the rise of a new generation of artists challenging traditional media, can we find in them a source for poems which push boundaries in a similar manner? Tamar will take you into gallery spaces to engage with contemporary art and to encourage new poems in response. You will also look at parallels between the gallery as a space for exhibition and
the page as a dynamic space for composition, and, based on the tutors’ own experience, will discuss the technicalities of artist / poet collaborations, publications and residencies.

Homeric Epics, The Poems of Journeys

Private Group with 13 members

As when the south wind spreads a curtain of mist upon the mountain tops, bad for shepherds but better than night for thieves, and a man can see no further than he can throw a stone, even so rose the dust from under their feet as they made all speed over the plain.
