Poetry in Progress

Robert L. Brewer, editor of Writer's Market and Poet's Market, brought April's Poem a Day Challenge to completion this week, acknowledging those of us who actually completed the challenge and awarding us a logo (seen on this page) and certificate to commemorate the activity. The goal of the project was not necessarily to crank out a fine polished poem every day but to produce a draft of a poem in response to the daily prompts with a goal of editing after the month ended.

The group turned into a little virtual community, a novel experience for me since I'm new to blogging and completely out of the MySpace and Facebook loop. Brewer continues to select daily highlights from each day's prompts. I'm pleased to have had at least four of my poems highlighted (highlit?) so far. Furthermore, by popular demand of the participants, he is continuing a prompt each Wednesday. I'm on vacation and the battery is getting low. More later!
