hi everyone! there is a cool new writing thing going around and i think it would be really fun for us here on wtw to participate in this.

a writer i really really respect and admire and love named savannah brown (writer of "graffiti (and other poems)" and "the truth about keeping secrets") has started this writing challenge called escapril (similar to inktober for artists). i highly encourage everyone to check out the links below to the social media places where rules and whatnot are all explained very well. basically, it's going to be a challenge where everyone participating writes/attempts to write a poem every day, for every day of april.  

the official prompts (you can see these ~officially~ on instagram):
1. a fresh start
2. april showers
3. incorporate music 
4. anxiety
5. back to nature
6. nostalgia
7. start with a time of day
8. a love poem
9. focus on the color
10. femininity
11. not from your perspective
12. spring cleaning
13. celestial bodies
14. make it rhyme
15. describe a smell
16. any dreams?
17. body as friend (or foe)
18. a happy place
19. without your name, who are you?
20. a liminal space
21. it's the end of the world
22. nourishment
23. when the party's over
