2020 NaPo Buddies


Hi friends! National Poetry Month is coming up this April! If you're new to NaPo be sure to stop by the Information Center to get a better idea of what's going on. Everyone is welcome to participate in NaPo whether you're going for 30 poems, or just have time for a few, we're just happy you're joining us is this poetry journey! It's truly one of my favorite events on YWS and I can't wait to read what you all come up with.

Last year we did a group called NaPo Buddies for NaPo where we paired up people who were interested in having an encouragement buddy for the duration of the month!

Just like last year if you sign up for NaPo Buddies - you will be encouraged to comment in your assigned buddy's NaPo thread periodically throughout the month. Other options for encouraging might be to check in with them, post encouragement on their wall, letting them know your favorite poem they've written, or even exchanging poetry prompts - but really how you choose to encourage them is up to you! Of course you are not limited to just commenting on only your Buddy's page, but this way you know there will be at least one person who will comment on your thread and who knows? Maybe you'll even make a new friend!

I'll be throwing weekly reminders in here with a motivational meme or word and a reminder to encourage each other, but this isn't a contest or anything too structured!

If you would like to be paired up with a NaPo Buddy please comment below and subscribe to this thread before April 1st. Pairings will be out on April 2nd. You can also comment below if you have any questions or concerns!
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan

I'd like a buddy! I'm once again attempting four poems, which will probably be my goal every year until I feel like it's too easy to achieve.

yes, please!
I was eleven years old
and I'd lost my mother,
and my soul.
And the crucible
gave me you.

Count me in!
Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.

I'd like a buddy :)
And I love the thought of being with you,
or maybe it's the thought of not being so alone.
