    Hey friends! We are about half way through april- which means we are also halfway through the Spoken Word/Visual Poetry Contest! As we get closer towards the end of the month, now is the time to continue working on your amazing poems and getting ready to submit them to the contest thread. The thread is open all month for submissions. I am definitely getting pretty close to submitting some of my own poems as well and I can’t wait to see all of yours!

    I wanted to post some #SpokenWord2024 tips to help you get started with creating visual and spoken word poetry!

    I found this video to be really informative and helpful in learning some different forms of visual poetry. If you are looking for some new methods to experiment, I definitely recommend taking a peek at that.

    And if you are looking for some inspiration to write and record spoken word poems, I recommend checking out the Button Poetry Youtube channel. I do not have the words to express how much I love this organization. So many of their poems have touched me deeply and are really the reason I got into slam poems and spoken word poemns in the first place.

    I wanted to take a moment to say that I am blown away by all of the incrediblke NaPo poems I have been able to read so far this month! I have also seen some incredible visual poetry published, that I wanted to take some time to acknowledge and shoutout!

    Something vain & something beautiful by @herbalhour

    City skyline by @Spearmint

    Stairs by @LuminescentAnt

    And so many more! I encourage all of you to submit your amazing poems to the contest!! If anyone has any questions (or wants to collab with me on a poem) don't hesitate to reach out!!

    April 14th PCrewPick

    Today's #PCrewPick is a poem by @GengarIsBestBoy called The Turtle who was Raised by Deer! If "petrichor", "insipid" and "cervine" are some of your favourite words, like me, then you're sure to love this poem. Using an unusual combination of forest and underwater imagery, Gengar has created some intensely vivid and poignant descriptions. There are so many beautiful sound devices like assonance and alliteration throughout the poem, as well, especially in the closing couplet:
    the turtle will always look past the trees
    and long for the scent of the sea

    Go give the rest of Gengar's poem (and thread) a read! And check out other #PCrewPicks in The PCrewPick Hall of Fame! Don't forget that you can spread the poetry love and shoutout other people's poems using the hashtag ThePeoplesPick, as well. #NaPo24

    Spearmint omg i love my linguistic anthropology course XD a joke research paper on the disease of childhood: http://users.erols.com/geary/psychology/publication.htm

    Spoiler! :
    Despite this history of clinical neglect, it has been estimated that well over half of all Americans alive today have experienced childhood directly (Suess, 1983).

    Emile Durkind was perhaps the first to speculate about sociological causes of childhood. He points out two key observations about children:
    1. the vast majority of children are unemployed, and
    2. children represent one of the least educated segments of our society. In fact, it has been estimated that less than 20% of children have had more than fourth grad education.

    Unfortunately, the "school" system has been largely ineffective. Not only is the problem a massive tax burden, but it has failed even to slow down the rising incidence of childhood.

    EllieMae This made me laugh so hard (yes you Emile Durkind... as a sociology major i have been forced to read many of your words...<.<) but as a joke paper, OMG I LOVE THIS HAHAHAHA
