Novel Novice Celebrates Nat’l Poetry Month

Welcome to National Poetry Month! April is here, and that means we are officially celebrating verse, poets, poetry collections, creative writing, poetry in pop culture, and poems, poems, poems!

For the 30 days of April, we will be providing you with multiple posts every day about all things poetry including:

  • Features about the lives and works of major poets
  • Novel Novice exclusive wallpapers
  • Creative writing prompts
  • Poetry-writing contests with fantastic prizes
  • So much more!

Check back daily to get all the scoop about how you can use this month to find inspiration in your own writing – whether it’s poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir, songwriting, comic strips, or something else entirely.

Poetry is the essence of language – it’s words stripped down to their bare bones. Let’s live it.

“Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words.” ~Paul Engle
