February marks the beginning of Post It Note Poetry month. It began 3 years ago as a challenge between myself and my writing partner at the time, Jodi Cleghorn – a month of bad poetry, written on a Post It Note.
You can find my collection of Post It Note Poetry over on tumblr as well as some other poetry including blackout/erasure poetry.
I will be posting a new poem daily in February #postitnotepoetry and will also curate the poems here each week.
But here’s the challenge: why don’t you have a go? Grab a packet of Post It Notes (any colour will do) and write a poem each day. Post it to twitter and include the hashtag. Include me too (@revhappiness) so I can see what’s going on.
If you can’t do it every day, no stress. Do what you can. Don’t censor. Write with both heart and mind.
Sunday marks the First of February and a month of writing poetry on Post It Notes. Have at it!
