poeming into the now: the November edition!


Last April, I ran the first edition of poeming into the now and it was awesome!

I've decided to offer it again, the November (mostly short poems) edition.

30 days, 30 poems, $30.

[Please see my explanation post for how I have decided to change up this offering. It is now free, but I am not going to be writing daily prompts. There will be no emails. There will only be a Facebook group and I will be posting my poems and encouragements there.]

Yes, I'm inviting you to join me in November to write your 30 poems in 30 days. 

Everyone is invited. Even if you haven't written a poem since third grade. Even if you are doing a 52 week poeming project (this would make a great revitalization month, I think).

All you need is the desire to write 30 poems in 30 days (and internet access, since the class will be via email or Facebook - sporadic internet access is totally acceptable for this class).

This edition of poeming into the now will be different from the one in April because I am going to focus on what I've started calling "mood ring poems." (They're like haiku, but less formal - they're attached to my self-portraits on instagram.) Short, simple poems that encapsulate your moment, right now.

Yes, this is very similar to what I did last November instead of NaNoWriMo, with my personal haiku-a-day project on instagram.

You can write mood ring poems or any other type of poem you would like. One poem a day.

You'll write your poems, I'll write mine. My prompts (which will be quite short) are just a jumping off point.

You'll write the poems you need to write.

There will be a Facebook group (of course), for you to share your poems and read other's poems. I will be there to cheer you on (and answer questions, if you have them). I'll be sharing my own 30 poems. The group - and my prompts - are there to encourage you, in your thirty day poeming project.

Are you excited? I am!

Join me!

* $30 is the suggested price. As always, my offerings are pay-what-feels-good-to-you, hence the drop down menu of descending options.

* If you cannot pay anything at this time, please contact me and I'll add you myself, after you let me know what your kindness project is - the $20 and $10 option kindnesses are on the honor system, you don't need to tell me what you are doing as a kindness project unless you want to let me know.

* I am also open to trades. I consider trades a form of kindness. Just make me an offer.

* You don't have to get the prompts as emails, you can view them in the Facebook group.

* You don't need to be part of the Facebook group, you can choose to only get the emails.

* Last time I offered a class using my own paypal button, I had some issues. I think I've resolved that, but if you encounter any issues, please let me know asap.

* If you'd like to pay a different amount than the ones offered, you can use my paypal address directly:
