Tweet your poems to NPR this month!!!!!



“In honor of National Poetry Month, we are inviting you to tweet us your poems with the hashtag #NPRpoetry….

“…We really do want a single tweet. That means 140 characters or less. We’ve been captivated by a few submissions only to realize that the tweet is actually a stanza of a longer poem.

“…Another trend we’ve noticed – people are sending us poems they’ve illustrated or drawn over photos. We love the creativity, but this is radio – so yeah. But if it meets the character count, we’ll keep it in the mix. And one final note here – and this is the honor system – your original work only please. Only tweet it if you wrote it.”

-Michel Martin – NPR Poetry Month Kicks Off With Your Twitter Submissions NPR – 4/1/17
