THE APRIL WRITE 2012 – POETS OLYMPIAD – DAY 30 – WORD POWER FINALE

Posted on

Monday 30th April is our finale but in order to write your last piece, you need the words which the group has selected.

For those who want to take part in the live finale (to listen or to share work) it will start from 10pm GMT/BST via Skype (add me ‘AngeeEdgar’). We will be able to conversate and share poetry with those we have only type-talked to during the month. Or you can enable the chat function in our Facebook Group. if you don’t have access to Skype.

I do hope you will join in, if only to listen and chat or IM (as Skype has that function too) for those without a microphone, you can listen to the rest of us and type your responses). I envision it to end around midnight but who knows we might have such a great time we carry on for a few more hours! If you are unavailable when I call out to the group at 10pm UK time, as soon as you are able to join us you can call me – just make sure you have added me on Skype and I have accepted, then you can be added to the group conversation! It really is easy!

Posted on

Welcome to Day 16 of the 2012 April Write – the Poets Jubilee Olympiad.

The other night I had a dream, and this is where the inspiration for today’s title came from.

Visit the facebook group later on, to see what I wrote, as I don’t want to influence what you come up with next.

So what ever this phrase means to you….  Your topic and title for Day 16 is:  “Sound Off”
