Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

National Poetry Month!

National Poetry Month!

HELLO CBERS IT IS I, LUMI! some of you know me, some of you don't (hi i'm lumi, 13 & she/her) and i wasn't going to make this thread because i thought it would be already up, but then again it's only march 21st. but admins, if someone already posted a thread like this you can just delete this one :)

to all my established, aspiring, and relatively recently developed poets, in less than a fortnight's time the lovely month of april will begin. the challenge is simple: write a poem every day for a month. to be more specific, the month of april. that is all.

i hope to read your poems soon :) 

Lumi, we're no longer posting comments about or linking to other sites, including the ones you mention. Everyone is welcome to post their own original poems and list of prompts on Chatterbox.

oh alright! in that case, forage for yourselves for prompts then. sorry, i didn't realize :) may i ask however what exactly is considered mentioning a website? National Poetry Month is just the generic celebration of poetry---is.  I've been gone for quite some time and have no idea what i've missed---did something happen to prompt the tightening of this rule?

this comment is meant to be purely curious :) i have no issue with this rule (although not being able to post a prompt list does suck a little bit), it just doesn't quite make sense to me for it to be this strict and i was wondering what the reasoning behind it is. thank you so much for everything you do :)

One of the sites you mention, which we had checked out and deemed safe, turned out to be facilitating private messaging between users. Just mentioning a site on Chatterbox may encourage other CBers to seek the site. So for privacy reasons, we no longer post comments relating to it.

alright thank you :) in that case, top, and april should hurry up in getting here. so i alas cannot provide a prompt list for you, but i do hope you will still participate :)

Maybe someone else reading this will create and post a prompt list. There are many, many creative writers on Chatterbox!

Great to see you, Lumi! I'm sure lots of CBers would be happy to create prompt lists.
