Poetry SuperPAC: Poetry Accountability Club
Dates: April 1 - 30 Virtual and Asynchronous
Time: Daily (Online)
Organizer: David Roderick
Do you need a writing community? Or a spark to get your pen moving after after you pour your morning coffee?
How about 30 writing prompts from some of America's finest poets, including Rick Barot, Dana Levin, Eugenia Leigh, Richie Hofmann, James Allen Hall, Jane Wong, Mia Ayumi Malhotra, Alan Chazaro, Gabrielle Bates, Jenny Johnson, Danusha Lameris, Jim Whiteside, Tomas Morin, Shelley Wong, Leonora Simonovis, Maw Shein Win, Jacques Rancourt. and many others!
Designed by poets and LML directors Rachel Richardson and David Roderick, our poetry SuperPAC program is designed to fuel your poetry-writing machine during National Poetry Month. On April 1st, participants will each share a concrete poetry goal for the month, whether that’s to write 30 first drafts or one poem per week, or simply to read more and try your hand at a form or two—and then we will help you hold yourself to your goal.
Everyone will receive a daily message with a poem to inspire you and a writing prompt from one of 30 poets we've gathered to provide you with inspiration and motivation to keep writing.
This isn’t a course, so there is no formal instruction, but this group can be a great complement to your poetry practice, whatever that is. All participants will have access to a private online forum (Slack) where sharing drafts and supporting each other are easy to manage. Participation in SuperPAC is entirely virtual.
This is a fantastic way to tap into our community and give yourself accountability and structure in the comfort of your own home.
