#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.
With the death of thriller author Tom Clancy this week, my topic is the Cold War. Write a poem about the Cold War by noon Friday, October 4.
