Here you'll find our official Poetry Writing Month content, past and present.
Every year for Poetry Month in April, Deep Underground Poetry participates in NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month), also known as GloPoWriMo (Global Poetry Writing Month).
NaPoWriMo is a creative writing project in which participants write a poem every day throughout April (30 poems in 30 days).
Join us in 2023 for the next instalment of NaPoWriMo. It's an international affair, so if you don't see your flag, then maybe you can be the one to represent your home country next time. Registration opens March 2023.
Poetry Writing Month 2023
Members who completed the challenge.
Our 6th Annual DU Poetry NaPoWriMo was amazing! Team NaPo'22 led 28 poets through 30 days of non-stop writing, fun, frustration, worry, inspiration, and sheer accomplishment at the finish line!
Our 5th DU Poetry NaPoWriMo 'Lord of the Poem' saw our virtual Fellowship of the Poem trek through Muddle Earth to destroy the One Poem, and rescue the Spiderweb Mistress from the evil MOAR!ON's spell!
Stardate 4.1.2020 Deannavati and James T. Blaze led a crew of Undergrounders on a 30 day mission to explore the deep spaces of literature, boldly going where no poets had ever gone before! The galaxies are STILL recovering from all of the damage done.
Our 3rd (and largest) DU Poetry NaPoWriMo 'Pirates of the Caribbean' saw our virtual pirate ship set sail for daily adventures. X marked the spot for poets seeking the Fountain of Inspiration, guarded by the reclusive poetess Juanita Ponce de Leonie!
Once again, we endured the cruelest month with our 2nd official DU NapoWriMo! Our many returning participants encouraged others across the finishing line. Perseverance paid off and so much was written in so little time. No one and no poem was left behind!
Our 1st official Deep Underground Poetry Writing Month saw our hosts bring their own unique twist to the NaPoWriMo challenge. Requiring a minimum of 50 unique words per poem, provided the ultimate test for our hardy first crop of participants.
A year before our official NaPoWriMo launch, the seeds were already being sown. Ahavati began working on plans to bring NaPoWriMo to DU Poetry. This concept was tested in a forum competition, with host Jade-Pandora and a few steadfast participants.
