Happy National Poetry Month!

April is my favorite month, for multiple reasons. The most obvious one, however, is that it is National Poetry Month. I’m going to try really hard this month to write a poem a day (PAD), and I encourage you all to do the same. Link up your poems in the comments– maybe when I’m not typing on my phone as I try to fall asleep I’ll make some sort of form or something.

Happy poem-ing!

PAD Day 1

Monster claws within
Yearn to escape and break free
To thine own self: truth

Share your voice!

I’m spending this weekend at the NELGBT Conference, where I’ll be presenting tomorrow with my friend Stacy. It’s an amazing experience to be surrounded by 500+ LGBTQA identified college students.

So today I challenge you to write about wine-and-love. Of course, you may have no love of wine yourself, in which case you might try an anti-Anacreontic poem.

Let’s toast,
celebrate you:
the renegades of norm;
the seekers of new tomorrows–
the future.

Sing loud
and share your voice;
remember what you’ve learned,
unapologetically.
Be you.
