#VerseDay is a Twitter hashtag I came up with to promote poetry writing. I invite Twitter users to suggest poetry topics by noon Eastern each Thursday. Participants must then draft poems by noon Eastern Friday. The resulting poems can be submitted anywhere.
Even if you've never written a poem before, you're invited. Taking the time to think poetically can help your creativity on other projects. If you'd like to participate, tweet your topics, tagged #VerseDay, by noon Thursday, July 18.
I'm seeking two poems to round out The 5-2's second year, so my topic this week is summer crime. Write a poem about summer crime by noon Friday, July 19.
