April prompt: POETRY

Paper  and Quill by mirz333

As April is the poetry month (napowrimo), we encourage all of you to try and write some poetry.


A Little Prompt-y Goodness IIPoetry has its own National Month dedicated to it! The month of APRIL!
They even have a funny little acronym for it, NaPoWriMo. Those of us who write prose recognize this a little... Hmmm... sounds like NaNoWriMo. I am sure that is completely coincidental and the two have nothing to do with one another.
Suspicious Spkmw 
So, last year I offered up a plethora of prompts:  One for each of the days of April, and due to a request (yes LualaDy I mean you) I will be prompting you once again! I will feature you at the end of the month  if you tag this journal in your deviations comments!
There is also a contest going on, hosted by MagicalJoey, so go and join in!
MagicalJoey's Anthology Contest II
Let's learn about fixed forms of poetry!
I will be using the 


- poetry that follows the previous list of prompts (poems following this list will earn a special feature from Amarantheans)
- any poetry
- prose that relates about a character writing poetry or a known poet
- visual art that illustrates a poem (please visit CollaborativeMinds gallery for a nice choice of literature seeking collaboration)
- visual art that depicts a character writing poetry or a known poet
- crafts relating to poetry (a writing quill for example)

Submit your pieces to the monthly folder

Awareness of the Arts

Our annual collaborative contest.

Awareness of the Arts: JourneyIt's Here!
The Third Annual Awareness of the Arts Contest
Remember The Theme for This Year is: Journey
10,000 :points: total to be won!
What it is:
Take one Artist and one writer and have them compete together. The Artist draws, or photographs or manipulates their craft; The Writer, writes a poem or short story based off the artist work *please keep written works to 1000 words or less*. It works the other way too, you can create art from literature too! La la la la 
Of course we have a theme Journey and your work needs to fit. We are a family here lets show the rest of the world what one form of social media can do. We can bring people from all walks of life with all talents together for one cause.
If you can find your own buddy awesome, if you need help finding a buddy we will pair up loners after asking two questions... Art or Writing? and What is your fav genre to work in

Word Of The Day 3.3.2017: CABOTAGE’My wings are itching,’ the young boy complained in a whining voice to his mentor as they had to duck under another particularly low and thick branch.
’You’re more than welcome to try and stretch them, William,’ the older man said, his own pair of wings tied firmly to his back, the deep, sky-blue feathers only giving an occasional twitch, usually when the man ducked under or jumped over something while not being able to stretch them out to balance himself.
‘Provided, that is,’ he continued, turning back towards the boy with a grin composed of entirely too many teeth on his face, ‘that you’re willing to risk Alterian’s shooting you down from the sky for breaking their no-flying laws.’
‘No, master, the boy whined, his voice pained. ‘I mean that my wings are itching,’ he cried, tears already slowly gathering in his eyes.
‘Oh,’ the older man said, the grin immediately melting from his face.
