Moon Poem + 21 Poems in March
Last year I started making postcards to send to the writers, readers and students on my mailing list. I’ve always loved receiving picture postcards and letters, and am fortunate enough to have many friends who share my passion for sending personal correspondence through the actual mail. Some even use vintage stamps. My latest card was sent a week or so ago, and inspired by the fact that we’ll enjoy two full moons during the month of March. Here it is in case you didn’t receive one.
March is also when I host the 21 Day Poetry Challenge. This all-level generative course is designed to support a daily, doable writing practice and will guide you through 21+ different ways to do that, while encouraging you to enjoy yourself in the process.
We learn about the craft of poetry as we look at some of my favorite contemporary poems, often borrowing writing strategies from our reading. Each session I create brand new content. For you! Some participants have done this course at least a dozen times already. Books have been written.
Lessons are delivered to your inbox each morning at 6 AM EST. I encourage you to write along in real time with everyone else, but I know plenty of writers who do the readings and use the prompts at their own pace, too. They never expire.

Here’s a postcard from early winter. I only a made a few of these, so many folks didn’t receive one.
