I decided to take part in NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month with my friends from New Zealand. I’ll write my poems in Ukrainian and translate them into English as soon as possible. So please be patient and lenient. I’ll post all poems under category NaPoWriMo: 30 poems in 30 days / 30 віршів за 30 днів.
NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.
NaPoWriMo was founded in 2003, when poet Maureen Thorson decided to take up the challenge (modeled after NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month), and challenged other poets to join her. Since then, the number of participants has gotten larger every year, and many writers’ organizations, local, national and even international, organize NaPoWriMo activities.
