Summer Blogging Hiatus

From July to August, I’ll be on a blogging hiatus much needed to write my dissertation and complete my studies. I won’t be completely absent, I’ll continue my Phoneography Project 365 as a little indulgence. All other post categories will be temporarily discontinued. Poetry 101 Rehab will move and be kindly hosted by Andy Townend. Thank you for your support and have a great summer!



Poetry 101 Rehab: Getaway

Do you miss the Writing 201: Poetry course by the Daily Post? Then join this blogging challenge, Poetry 101 Rehab, that will provide your poetry fix!

How It Works

Each Monday at 01:00 pm UTC I will publish a poetry prompt along with my response to it. You are invited to answer the prompt, twist it or ignore it; write a poem of your own or share a poem by another author.

I would love to hear about your inspiration, your creative process or other poetry related thoughts, but this is no way obligatory. Nothing is obligatory in this challenge, the idea is to get together, talk poetry and have fun!

How You Can Join

Anyone can participate, anytime you want. Publish your poetry post and add a link to it to the InLinkz link-up below my post, or share your link in a comment. Use the tag Poetry 101 Rehab, so we can find each other in the Reader.

I will act as your hostess, and I’ll be here for you to reply your comments, read your verses, like and comment. While my blog is the starting point for the challenge, do visit fellow poets in the link-up and chat to them on their blogs!


The Prompt: Getaway

Next stop


Mind the gap

Get on, get off

Get out of the town

Go on with your life

While it’s time


Get away


This week’s prompt is GETAWAY. My response, besides being a play on words, was inspired by my recent trip to London (hence the “Mind the Gap” announcement on the tube) and ads for weekend getaways. What will your take on the keyword GETAWAY be? Blog about it in a poetry post and share your link below!

Next Week: Change of Host!

I’ll be on a blogging hiatus this summer, but no worries, Poetry 101 Rehab will continue elsewhere! Starting next week, the same event in the same format will be taken over by your new host, Andy Townend.

Andy is a photographer, writer and poet, a regular rehab patient and host of the Dark Side Thursday challenge. I’m sure that you will enjoy the change and will report on Andy’s blog next Monday for your regular dose of poetry!
