Invitation Received From "The Tangled Branch"

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I received an email from poetry forum "The Tangled Branch" inviting our members to participate there. While PMO is not affiliated with The Tangled Branch, there is a link to it in the "Other Sites" topic in our Promotions forum, and I'm aware that some PMO members may already be members there. Reproduced below is the email I received and two attachments that came with it. (Be sure to check out the attachments, one of which is a handy step-by-step guide for joining "The Tangled Branch." I'll pin this topic here in Member Poetry for the Month of April, so that members here may benefit. Afterward, I'll move this to the Other Sites topic in Promotions.

I'm a member of Tangled Branches though not an active member.  I joined more to lurk than participate.   I think I posted one response to something I read a couple of years ago and that is it.   

It appears they are inviting us to join in the US National Poetry Month Challenge.  The same challenge that I wrote about in this last week's Tinker's Blog and for which I set up a thread in the Playground.  They are taking it more seriously since they have set up a forum for poets to create their own threads for each poem entered.   They are small but have a loyal membership of which, last year, 7 committed to writing a poem a day and 4 accomplished the goal while the other 3 posted what they could.   At Writing.com there were several more participants of which I believe 12 accomplished the entire 30 poems, but it appears the person who led the challenge is too busy this year and has yet to set up a forum for participation. Which is disappointing since the support of others in the challenge is what kept me going last year and I was one of the 12.   I also posted my poems here but was alone in the challenge at PMO and therefore no one to commiserate with or to encourage me.  Frank Gibbard was my inspiration in the challenge here when he was alive. 

If you choose to take up the challenge at Tangled Branches, please also post your poems somewhere at PMO, whether in the thread I set up for all participants or creating your own thread or simply posting in Member Poetry or Overflow.

Well Judi, you know me. I'm lucky if I post one poem every thirty days. (And that doesn't usually happen.):excl:

Yes Juris,  Post them where you want them.  I am thrilled that someone else from PMO is picking up the gauntlet.     I'm pretty much keeping mine in one thread in the Playground.  But I will post a few in Member Poetry.
