What is NaPoWriMo?

Historical notes: Maureen has been doing this since 2002, & in some years has even attempted 2 or 3 poems per day! I have been playing along with her since April 2004, when I failed utterly & rather spectacularly to make it through even half the month. (As a poetry editor/publicist at the time, National Poetry Month was too too busy at work, alas.) But I did better in 2005, despite AWP in Vancouver overlapping a bit at the beginning. Last year was the first time I managed 30 poems in 30 days, but I still missed a few in real time & had to play catch up. (That's OK, by my rules, & if I manage it again this time, hooray.) Not all the poems are keepers, but many are, & the rest are recycled or composted. In 2006, Maureen made a tiny chapbook with one poem from a bunch of participants.

How it works here on this blog: NaPoWriMo poems will be published in a single evolving post, each day's new poem will replace the poem from the day before. No archiving, no botnapping.
