The April Challenge will have the theme "Lyrical Love". The twist is that it can be any sort of love except romantic love. It can be love for a family member, a friend, an object, a place or an idea or anything else--but not for a romantic relationship! In honor of the fact that April is National Poetry Month, we are asking the participants to try their hand at a short poem! Your prompt will be a type of short poem. No form will be longer than 15 lines, and most will be shorter.

The April challenge poems will be due Tuesday April 28,and will be revealed on Thursday, April 30. Please tag your poem "challenge: lyrical love" and "month: 2015 april". Please remember to use the header template below or on the community profile page, and to put the name of your poem and your name in the subject line.



To request your prompt, please leave a comment to this post. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your elements. Or you can email the mods at manypaths@lotrgfic.com.com

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our April challenge!

I'd like to give it a try, though I can't promise anything -- poetry isn't my strong suit, and I've had a poor showing with getting anything written and submitted lately! However, I'm still interested in seeing what I can do with the prompt!

Alas, once again I will be late. I do plan on submitting something for this challenge, as I really like the prompt -- hopefully in the next few days!

P.S. I really appreciate that this community allows for being late! Not that I plan on being late every time, but Real Life has not been my friend lately as far as keeping up with my writing goes. :)
