Calling All Poets


For National Poetry Month, NPR is soliciting poetry to help celebrate the “art of the verse.”

They are asking for original poems in your favored format:  haikus, couplets, freeform, you name it.

You can submit your poem(s) –140 character or less– to Twitter with the hashtag #NPRpoetry. You can also send your submission(s) to TikTok using the same hashtag (no more than 15 seconds and radio-friendly).


P.S. You are encouraged to share your compositions in this blog’s Comment section! 😍

Logic vs. Creativity

thinkingThis blog (Nan’s Notebook) has pretty much been centered around logical thinking because discussing religion from a non-believer standpoint, as well as politics and other topics of the day, is usually the work of the left side of the brain.

But deep inside, I’ve always enjoyed creative writing — although I haven’t done any for several years. Then I read some creative works by a blogger I follow and it prompted me to reinvigorate the creative (right) side of my brain.

The result is my new blog: Where Are We Going Today? It will be a collection of poems, prose, haikus, and perhaps some visual creations. Most of it will be mine, but I’m inviting others to participate as well (see new blog for details).

Please stop by and let me know what you think. Become a Follower* … and a Contributor if you’re so inclined. Be sure to read what’s already been added to the Creative Pathway.

*NOTE: To be notified of new postings on the new blog, you must visit and “follow” from there.
