2 Ways to Celebrate April: Camp NaNoWriMo and National Poetry Month

I briefly entertained the idea of doing an April Fool’s Day post, but decided against it (mostly since I had trouble settling on a single idea). So today’s topic is just a regular non-fool’s day post, although I highly encourage the celebration of the day in all its pranking glory.

April is known in the literary world as two things: National Poetry Month and Camp NaNoWriMo (previously Script Frenzy).

Camp NaNoWriMo is similar to its parent event in encouraging writers to write every day with the goal of completing a word count goal by the end of the month. It differs by having writers choose their own writing goal (vis a vis, the November event is a universal 50,000 word goal). If you’re interested in the event, please go check out the Camp NaNoWriMo website.

National Poetry Month is primarily a US celebration, but since it’s mostly celebrated on the internet,¬†there’s no real restrictions. They have a website with an FAQ for anyone interested in learning more about the event.

Nothing else fancy for today. Enjoy!
