Spotlight On! Poem-a-Day | VIDA: Women in Literary Arts

  1. Love this! I actually did a “poem-a-day” of my own one month in a group of friends … we each committed to writing a poem each day, and called it “Daily Poetry Surprise.” A winner was chosen for each day. It got pretty silly (and fun) pretty fast.

  2. Thank you! I love how you named it “Daily Poetry Surprise” with winners! Sounds like so much fun! Thanks for your support!
