April is National Poetry Month, and I’m excited to announce the publication of my latest book – Rhyming Brighter – just in time for the celebration!
This portable paperback is available at Amazon for only $7.99. It’s filled with 31 days of poetry prompts along with lined pages for writing. Every prompt comes with a detailed explanation and sample poem as well as a glossary of frequently used terms. Readers can work through the exercises at their own pace and in whatever order they choose.
Rhyming Brighter is an excellent gift for the poet in your life! It’s also a wonderful tool for homeschool teachers and students who want to explore poetry in a convenient and interactive way. The next book in the series – Rhyming Even Brighter – hits online bookshelves in a few weeks!
Let’s celebrate National Poetry Month together! Why not join me in the Writer’s Digest PAD (Poem-A-Day) Challenge? It’s no cost, no fuss, and no risk! You don’t have to share your poems with anyone unless you choose to. I’ll be posting my daily poems on my Facebook page and publishing them once every five days on this blog.
My recently published poetry collection, In Days Divine, took root when I lived in England and entered a series of online poetry challenges. I’d never done anything like that before and was surprised to find that I loved writing poems with directions and a deadline. I won’t say they were all diamonds, but the process definitely made me a better poet.
Touch here to find out more about the 2021 PAD challenge from Writer’s Digest. I hope you’ll consider participating and maybe posting your poems on the WD site? Or you can simply drop in to read what others are writing. No pressure – just poetry!
Above all, I wish you a happy National Poetry Month, and thanks for reading!
