National Poetry Month (US) will kick off on 1st April and as usual The Pig Pen will run a series of prompts/challenges in Milo's forum.



This year, all posts in this forum will be exempt from the "3 critiques for new members" rule, so anyone can sign up and join in.  Tell your friends, your nemeses, the guy who walks your dog, your dog, your dog's friend Sam -- anyone, from any part of the world, is welcome. 



All other rules of The Pig Pen must be followed, of course, but they're not too onerous.  The point of NaPM is to get you writing, not to judge or discourage in any way.


Let the mayhem begin!
