    If you'd like to flex your lyrical muscles with some fellow FAWMers this April, then this is the post for you!

    In conjunction with NaPoWriMo, National Poetry Writing Month, I host a specific channel in the FAWM Slack chat for poets, bards, troubadours, hep cats, and even possibly @ianuarius, as a place to post poems, talking about write-y thingamabobs (techniques for the non-poets out there), and to get feedback on your writing. It's super fun!!!

    For the uninitiated, the goal of NaPoWriMo is to write one poem a day. I post the daily prompt from the official site there, and we all see what we can come up with. There are no expectations of how many you poems you must write, that you comment on poems, or even if you say anything at all. It's just a fun way to keep the juices flowing between FAWM and 50.90, and you'll meet some great folks!

    Even if you don't want to join us there, consider it as a personal challenge. Writing poems, even terrible ones!, is a great way to develop your lyric writing skills. Here's the link to the official site:

    And here's how to get on to Slack, the channels are on the left: https://join.slack.com/t/fawm/shared_invite/zt-g10gwymu-yYtiGD3GlUC...

    Hope to see you there!

    Sometimes posts troubadoury things, sometimes thingamabobs, and sometimes meaningless schlock. However I find that the poetry based prompts help my songwriting.

    I'm interested! I can see April being a good month to focus my spoken word/poetry writing. Seems to be a few who take part on the YouToobs, so I'll gladly post there 😁

    The link for Slack says to ask for a new link from the person who invited you, so apparently that one is inactive.

    Try this @sheilerk:

    I think the invite links expire after so long. Sorry about that!

    I always enjoyed the idea of pre-haste…

    Sorry, just my odd mind reacting to the thread tittle…

    See You In The Shadows…

    Good morning!

    10 days to go! I've updated the Slack invite link. (Thanks @scottlake!)

    When you get to the channel, there are 2 pinned items on the top. One is a how-to, the other is some inspiration.

    Hope to see you there!

    Bumping this up one more time! When you get to the channel, make sure to read the 2 pinned items at the top. One is a how-to, the other a little inspiration. 😀
