Aww, has this blog petered out again?  I love this community, and I hope we can keep it thriving!

For now, here is a link  ( http://literature.sdsu.edu/onWRITING/vonnegutSTYLE.html ) to an awesome article about writing with your own style, via Kurt Vonnegut.  Maybe this will inspire you!

Revival of the Poetry Challenge!

with one comment

Hello fellow poets!  I am very excited to be participating in this community again with you!  The best motivation to keep this going is for people outside the community to read and comment, so publicize your participation on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, etc.  If you’re going to write it, people might as well read it!

I’ll write a killer poem later this week, but I thought I’d kick us off with one of my favorite poetry-related quotes:

A poem should not mean
But be.
~Archibald MacLeish, Ars Poetica, 1926

So beautiful; so true.
