The Harwood Guide to the 2021 National Poetry Writing Month Challenge

This is the 25 anniversary of National Poetry Month! We challenge ourselves to write 30 poems in 30 days. At first, this seems daunting, especially to beginners. I believe we can do it! Even if I write fewer than 30 poems, I have new poems, which feels like a win. This is a game you can’t lose.
