:new: I wanted to remind everyone that this list is up here! Hopefully those who are participating in NaPoWriMo this year will find this list helpful. You also might enjoy an archive I've begun compiling of visual art pieces with great titles and songs/music videos that I've found useful for writing:… :new:

National Poetry Writing Month starts tomorrow! Don't forget to check out the official page (>here<) for details and prompts over the course of the month. Also, as always, if you are in need of more prompts, be sure to take a look at our Prompt-er-ly-ness blog for some ideas!

And now, down to business....


For the past year, I have been working slowly on something I've termed the "100 Poem Project." The idea is, I've created a list of 100 topics, some of them simply nouns, some verbs, some famous people, some song titles, etc. etc. I've been using these themes to write poems, one per topic. To help you all through NaPoWriMo, I thought I'd post my list for you.

:star:But that's not all!:star:

I am opening a folder in the gallery called "100 Poem Topics." Anyone may submit to this folder, whether they are a member of this group or not! I'm trying to help out everyone who is participating in NaPoWriMo, so I want this tool to be available to EVERYONE! The project details are as follows...:pc:

:bulletpurple: You may only submit one poem per week.

:bulletblue:  You do not need to post any questions for critique or a link to a critique of anyone else's poem. However, you must mention this project in your artists comments and the topic off of which you have based your poem. Pieces that do not have this will be declined.

:bulletgreen: Over the course of the month of April, I will be keeping track of the poems written for each topic. At the beginning of May, I will post a master list of all of the submitted pieces and everyone who has participated in a news article.

I really hope you all participate! :) In case you need some inspiration, or want to know more about how it works, feel free to pop on over to my 100 Poem Project Journal. And don't forget, if a topic doesn't make ANY SENSE to you, just google search it. Some of these topics are actually scientific terms, or famous people, or song titles. And if it's a song, going and listening to it on youtube might help you out a LOT.

And last but not least...

Please be aware that this is a poetry-only community.

This group is dedicated to the creation of excellent poetry and our growth as artists. In an attempt to avoid groups with lots of deviants and lots of submissions that nobody reads, I have developed these rules:


:bulletred:Press the "Join" button!
:bulletred:In the space for comments, please write "I read and understood the rules." If you do not have any poetry in your gallery, please clarify that you will be submitting poetry to the group.


:bulletorange:DO NOT submit to the "Featured" folder. This folder is reserved for monthly featured pieces - this means your work MAY end up in there anyway ;p
:bulletorange:You may only submit one poem per week, so MAKE IT COUNT!
:bulletorange:In the artist's comments, on each piece you submit, you must link to a recent (within 1 week) critique of someone else's poem. this does NOT have to be an official critique. For more help, see this: thewrittenrevolution.deviantar…
:bulletorange:In the artist's comments, on each piece you submit, you must post at least two questions to direct critique. If you need help, you might find this useful: thewrittenrevolution.deviantar…
:bulletorange:Please note that submission rules are different for the "Critique, Please!" folder. See below.
:bulletorange:Rules for submitting to the 100 Poem Topics are also different, but fairly easy: you must list the poem topic you used for the piece in the artist's comments. For more information, and a list of the topics, please check out the blog:…

(Please be aware, a critique does NOT have to be one of the official, premium members-only options. It is simply a critical comment on someone else's piece. For assistance, be sure to check out the "Critique Tutorials" collection.)

:work:CRITIQUE, PLEASE!:work:
:bulletyellow: Please only submit works-in-progress to the "Critique, Please" folder.
:bulletyellow: Submissions to this folder must have at least 2 questions to direct critique, but do NOT need to include a link to critique of someone else's poem.


:bulletgreen:Suggestions for group favorites must be submitted by group members, but do not have to have been written by them.
:bulletgreen:Suggestions for group favorites must be of excellent quality and preferably a finalized work.
:bulletgreen:The main favorites category is for poetry ONLY. We do, however, recognize non-poetic masterpieces in the Prose Favorites and the Non-Literature Favorites folders. Make sure you suggest your favorite to the correct folder!

Other than that, HAVE FUN! :blowkiss:
