APRIL WRITE 2013 – Thank You

Posted on

The April Write 2013 comes to an end…

Image

I just wanted to say how truly grateful I am for your participation and your readership. For those writing, I read all your comments & pieces in response to the daily prompts and I am always left speechless, my breath taken away with the complexity, compassion, honesty, openness and sheer fearlessness of expression you feel you are able to share on these walls. You give me back hope and inspiration when I read you, because I feel that all will be well in this place and with me.

I feel truly humbled when I think back to all those years ago when I had this silly idea (which I put it down to divine intervention) and to see where the April Write has come today, and where it could go. We may always be small in number but we are a creative family… always inspiring each other. Something Halim Flowers said to me and Marina Bayley a few days prior serves to reminds me (when I forget) just how important taking part (by reading or writing) in the April Write can be and is to some of you and how it can impact in such a life-changing way.

I’m lost for words… but I read you. I feel you. I SEE YOU…

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 

I also want to extend my heartfelt thanks to Marina Bayley for doing a fantastic job hosting the 2013 April Write! 3 Cheers and a Hip Hip Hooray!!!

I’m sure it will be like coming home!”  ~ Angee

APRIL WRITE 2013 – Day 30 – WORD POWER FINALE

Posted on

Welcome to Day 30 of the 2013 April Write – a new era begins

I can’t believe that we are here already, in a wink and blink of the eye 29 days have passed by since our first mission. Since then, you have accepted every mission without much contrition and now as I glaze upon this page, I begin to see the mission you accepted on day 22. To bring forth words that reflected your experience of being here with We too. I have followed your great escapades with delight and glee waiting for you to bring words of wisdom and power to me.

Image

Now as is our tradition, I set another mission for thee to take these small delights, which have been freely given to We and make them breathe. Bring them to life for the world to see, make them stand as a beacon which ascends from the page and sets the whole of facebook ablaze. 

So the words you have put forward are listed below and if you have decided to take up this mission it is now time for you to go, pick up your pen, pencil or place your hands against the keys. With this said there is one task left for me and a small decree use each word once and capitalise them if you please. ~ Marina

PREPARING FOR THE APRIL WRITE 2013 FINALE…

Posted on

Image

Keeping with tradition, our finale piece of the April Write 2013 will be a Word Power challenge. However, unlike the previous Word Power exercise, these words will be chosen by you.

ImageIn order to do this, we need a word or words which currently describe or sum up your experience of this month, which we will all then use to create our finale April 2013 write with.

So, your task if you should accept it, is to add your word/s below or like the ones which have been added by others and I will let you know on the 30th which words will be used for the finale challenge. ~ Marina

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!
