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
Mind the gap
Get on, get off
Get out of the town
Go on with your life
While it’s time
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!
