For the poets out there, this month we are introducing our poetry challenge, ‘April Poet’’
We are challenging you to write and share a poem every day throughout April!

- You can write a poem about any topic you like, but we’ll provide optional prompts if you need them.
- If you choose to share your work on social media, don’t forget to link and tag us in your post (details are shown below) We might even feature your work on our blog!

Tips to make things a little more manageable
- You could decide a theme for all of your poems in advance
- You could write short poems if time is an issue, or simply write a verse each day
Ideas to make your poem a little more interesting
- You could try making poems from words you cut out of magazines or newspapers.
- You could create a drawing or take a photo to go with your poem
- You could use calligraphy to write your poem
- You could decorate the page around your poem
At the end of the month, why not make a little video (up to three minutes long) and send it to us? Or send us some photos of your favourites. With your permission, we may even feature your video on our site!
And if you know any other creatives who might also enjoy this challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!
