April is National Poetry Writing Month and in celebration we have devised a project to get you writing every day. We will be supplying a fresh writing prompt, and an example poem to get you in the right frame of mind, every morning over the whole of April.
All you have to do is join the free Campus group for NaPoWriMo 2017 and wait for the prompts to come rolling in. Once you’ve written your poems you can post them into the group, swap feedback with fellow poets, and share in the discussion over the month.
This project is open to everyone, so be sure to invite your friends! More members means more poems, more feedback, and a bigger collective of poets. Remember, do try to give as much feedback to others as you can: the community is what will get you through the whole month, so be supportive as well as (constructively) critical.
So come one and all and sign up for The Poetry School’s NaPoWriMo 2017 extravaganza now!

Hi Andy, all you need to do to find the prompts is click on ‘#NaPoWriMoPrompts’ in the ‘Hashtage in this group’ section, at the very top of the group page. This link takes you to the prompts in chronological order, with the most recent first.
