NaPoWriMo 2011

April is National Poetry Writing Month, otherwise known as NaPoWriMo, which mirrors the concept of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November. Except, instead of having to write 50,000 words in a month (!!), the aim is to write and post one poem a day for the thirty days of April.

To make it somewhat more focussed for me, I've decided to break them down into batches of five, each vaguely around a theme.

More info can be found at NaPoWriMo.net
