My location is Newcastle, UK
located in Time GMT +0 (I believe this is correct)

- I am very new and unsure of what will be involved so fingers crossed some of you on here will be happy to keep me right with the rules/entries please!! 🙏☺️


Welcome, Kinkwizard! Daisy is correct; Team NaPo is very supportive of entrants and have carried quite a few across the finish line! You have nothing to worry about! I believe you will be GMT +1 by April 1st?

You will post poems directly into the thread. Linking from your page is not allowed. You can also post them to your page, but the for the comp they must be posted directly into the thread.

For all in the U.K, it will be GMT+1 from 30th March onwards throughout April.
It's confusing I know. GMT doesn't change; it just happens to fit with Winter Time as GMT(+/-0)  --  but when the clocks go forward for British Summer Time (BST) it becomes GMT+1 for the NaPo month and beyond until October when the clocks go back.

Thank you, Josh! Yes, it most definitely can be confusing.

Ha! A great shame, that, 57h. Ink it up 365!



A shame indeed where my hand to have been still over the absence.. yet if not ink or pencil, then by chisel, hammer or another creative sword is in practice daily.  A peak at something from within the void of sands past..
