You Are Invited to Camp NaPo

Camp NaPo is Coming to YWS

August 6 - August 12


You may have heard of NaPo before, the month-long Poetry Writing event in April, but this year members of Poetry Crew have decided to bring NaPo to you again in a mini week-long camp-themed version: Camp NaPo! The event will take place August 6 - 12.

What's Camp NaPo?

Like NaPo in April, participants can write a poem every day, but there'll be a host of other activities to work on your poetry skills as well for campers - and you are invited to participate as little or as much as you'd like, because camp should be flexible!

Each "camper" is invited to make a "Logbook" or club thread in the Camp NaPo Club to post their poetry progress for the week.

What Activities Will There Be?

Here's some of the activities you can expect!

* Daily Poem Challenge
Every day there'll be a new poetry challenge posted on the Camp Club Wall for you to challenge your skills with. It's something you can use as a starting point if you're stuck with what to write that day.

* Poetry Exchange
Aley will be hosting a Poetry Exchange, where users can swap their poems for reviews. Watch out for that sign up this week, because spaces are limited!

* Poetry Workshops
There'll be a few workshops throughout the week to work on specific poetry skills. If you're interested in hosting a workshop, there are still a few spots available in the schedule, so contact alliyah if you've got a workshop you'd like to run!

* Poetry Jams
Throughout the week there'll be opportunities to "jam" with other poets and see what others are writing. Consider hosting your own as well!

* Poetry Contests
Also there'll be a few contests running during Camp NaPo that will have point prizes for the winners.

How Can I Participate?

The best way to get involved is to join the Camp NaPo Club and make a Logbook. Keep watch for more news and activities as more information becomes available!

If you have any questions about Camp NaPo please contact alliyah.
