Publish date:

April is National Poetry Month, and Poetic Asides blogger Robert Lee Brewer is calling all poets (and even non poets) to take part in his annual Poem-A-Day Challenge! Last year, more than 400 poets posted more than 4,000 poems during the month of April and turnout this year is expected to be even greater.

Participants who complete the poem-a-day challenge will receive a certificate, an online badge (for display on your blog or website) and will be considered for publication in a free eBook designed by Writer's Digest's own wonderful designers.

Participation is free. All you have to do is show up to the Poetic Asides blog on April 1, write a poem a day, and have a great time. Click here for full details, then when you're ready to stat visit:

If you have any questions, just send an e-mail with "Poem-A-Day Challenge" in the subject line to robert.brewer@fwmedia.com.

Even if you don't participate by writing poems in the comments, we hope you'll participate at home. And if any of those poems eventually end up published, we'd love to hear about it.

Good luck!
