I had the pleasure of participating in OctPoWriMo in October, and today I received an amazing playful poetry pack I won in the raffle for participating.
It was such a fun– and therapeutic– month. It’s been a long time since I’ve consistently written anything, let alone poetry, and it was so nice to play along!
It was especially interesting to me to be prompted to write about a certain topic or in a certain style. As an educator, I often find myself asking my students to write about certain topics or in certain styles. Being told to write a certain way myself actually helped me sympathize with the complaints I receive from my students. OctPoWriMo has made me a better person and teacher.
Thank you so much to Morgan Dragonwillow and the rest of the brains behind OctPoWriMo not only for my amazing playful poetry pack, but for the wonderful experience October offered me. I cannot wait until next October.
