Winter Poetry Challenge

ClaireCoverROMP’s second online poetry-writing challenge took place from January to February, 2020. This online writing challenge encouraged people to write and submit one poem per week for 8 weeks.

An anthology of some of the poems from the challenge can be purchased for $4 HERE.

The purpose of this challenge was not to share work with a group of people such as in a workshop setting. The purpose was to personally challenge people to write. ROMP director Shaun Perkins responded with brief but helpful feedback for every poem submitted. There were choices of no feedback, positive only feedback or revision feedback.

Another online challenge is coming soon.

“Thank you so much for the feedback and thank you for hosting the challenge again! I can’t tell you how valuable the ability to get feedback has been for me; the interaction has made me write more poetry outside the challenges, and really made me pay attention to my world (even as small as it is now physically because of the current situation) in new ways.”–Jennifer D.
