Write a poem a week with 52

cover of 52: A year of poetry writing prompts

"Write a poem a week. Start now. Keep going." That was the motto of the 52 project, a year-long online writing course led by poet Jo Bell, featuring one new prompt each week. Thousands of poets wrote tens of thousands of poems  - some of which have won prizes and been widely published.

What made the writing prompts really special is that each one featured two or three contemporary poems as inspiration - poems you might never have heard or read, but that represent the best of what's being written in English at the moment.

And now it's everyone else's turn to get in on the action. Nine Arches Press have just brought out 52: Write a Poem A Week Start Now Keep going: A Year of Poetry Writing Prompts It features prompts written by Jo Bell and guest poets from David Morley to Rachel Boast.
