Make May your month for writing! One of the best ways to improve your writing is to write every day. This creates a habit that can be a powerful tool in furthering your skill.
Our community boasts a number of talented poets who host daily and weekly writing challenges that have a prompt to inspire your creativity. They also provide support and feedback when you post your poem using their hashtag. You can do as few or as many as you are able.
Each challenge has a different theme and feel, so you find the one that best suits your current creative process. You can also join the Combo-Prompt community who challenge themselves to do more than one prompt with each piece.
Please note, that you can tap on the pictures to take a closer look at the challenge prompts.
