Rena Traxel is hosting a poetry challenge in April and a contest in May on her blog in celebration of National Poetry Month. Write a poem a day that corresponds to the letter of the alphabet. This challenge is open to everyone.
The Challenge During April
Starting with the letter 'A' on April 1, 2012 write a poem based on that day's lesson and challenge. There are 26 letters in the alphabet so you will create 26 poems in the month of April. Take Sundays off to revise (except for Sunday, April 1). If you have kids get them involved.
