Writing about Poetry Today

I hear from writers who say this time of year they just can't get motivated or inspired to write. I think that it is universal. When we spend time in our homes because of the weather, we find other things we need to do or want to do and just put off writing.

I found a wonderful site tonight that should give writers and poets plenty to think about and possibly to write about. Twenty-Five of the best poetry writing prompts had me making notes by those listed so I can write a poem or a story that the prompt uncovered deep in my mind.

Visit this site and let me know if you found anything that jolted a memory or an image for you.

One of my poems was accepted yesterday for publishing in April during the Poetry Parade on The editor, Jayne Jaudon Ferrer has gone a great job with this site.

She says: This site exists for one purpose only: to help dispel the ugly myth that poetry is boring. Granted, a lot of poetry is boring, but you won't find it here. At Your Daily Poem, you'll find poetry that is touching, funny, provocative, inspiring, and surprising. It may punch you in the gut, it may bring tears to your eyes, it may make you laugh out loud, but it most assuredly will not bore you.

If you subscribe, you will receive a poem sent to you daily. 
Go the Archives of Your Daily Poem. Under the Bs in authors you will find my name.
Read other poems by me that were published and sent out to subscribers of Your Daily Poem. If you are a poet, think about sending one of your poems to Jayne at

Your Daily Poem has more than a daily poem

If you haven't visited Jayne Jaudon Ferrer's site  and clicked on all the pages available, you are missing a treat. I subscribe to YDP and receive my daily poem in my Inbox, but tonight I took some time to check out the full website.
So much of interest there! I clicked on the Store page. Good books on poetry, framed poems by poets who have been published on YDP, including mine!!
She has a  Poetry News page.  Did you know a documentary on Carl Sandburg was released this summer? I missed that. I should be reading Jayne's website more often.
She has an Open Mic page where poets send in poems for critique. Maybe you'd like to do that and see what the readers say about it. Or just read the poems that have been sent in for critique.
I think it is safe to say that Jayne's website is about all things poetry.

I hope to get into Jayne Jaudon Ferrer's class at JCCFS this summer. You know Jayne is a poet and delightful speaker. I look forward to getting to know her as a teacher. Jayne is the NCWN West Representative for S.C.

Her books show her humor and her sensitivity to all the subjects we deal with in our daily lives.

See information about her class here.

Harnessing the Power of Words will be taught at John C. Campbell Folk School August 15 - 21. 2010.
Instructor: Jayne Jaudon Ferrer
Class Description:
Each of us has something important to say, but just as we speak in different dialects, we write in different genres. Find your writing niche as we explore the power and appeal of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir, journals, letters and blogs.

This class will help you find the format best suited to your voice through creative writing prompts, supportive sharing, and gentle critiques. From business people to retirees, novelists to bloggers...all are welcome.

TUITION for the full week is $527.00. If you have not been to the John Campbell Folk School, you must come and experience the delight of the community , the excellent food served three times a day, the music and entertainment, and best of all, the people you meet here. Lasting friendships are formed in this special place.

Folks who live in the local area are eligible for 1/2 price tuition. But you have to ask.
