This past week I have been running a Poetry Pep Up across social media platforms, with thanks to the support of CQRASN and the lovely Trudie Leigo. You can play catch-up with the prompts by clicking on the relevant day below, to go direct. It’s not too late to put some sparkle in your day, fire up your creativity, and build writing muscle.
During the Poetry Pep Up Zoom meets, I made mention of Poetry Friday. This is it! Today the round-up is being hosted by Margaret Simon at Reflections on the Teche, with an exquisite letter to her students, in the golden shovel format. At the bottom of Margaret’s post, other contributors will share their links for the week.
If you don’t have a blog post to link in with, you are still very welcome to follow along and learn from this wonderful, warm and welcoming community of bloggers. Comments create community – so don’t be shy. 🙂
My collection written during the week is at the bottom of this post. I’ve also shared (with permission) one by Kirsty, new to poetry, who wrote a wonderful golden shovel with a strikeline from ‘Too Many Friends’.
There are a number of poets who didn’t get to complete the week, so it’s not to late to jump on board and use the prompts next week. You won’t be alone.
Stay safe and be kind.
