|Geof Huth, bloodrot (for Jane Chin) (2018)|
Another International Pwoermd Writing Month is almost upon us, and I'm more unready than ever. Instead of being at home for most of the month, I'll spend most of it traveling (to Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, West Virginia, and Albany, the one in New York). And this InterNaPwoWriMo, the twelfth, will begin while I am in a foreign country, a first.
Thus, I'll have fewer required pwoermds to create this year. The only two I'll require I do is one textual one and one object pwoermd, and the latter is going to be difficult, because I'll have to find objects while I am traveling and inscribe pwoermds upon them. I'm hoping I can find stones on the streets. It will be an adventure.
I'll also be writing nanoessays about pwoermds again. You can find these on Twitter or Facebook at geofhuth. Everything @ geofhuth.
For those not familiar with this international festival of the pwoermd, let me begin by telling you that a pwoermd is a one-word poem. No title, just a poem. Or just a title, which also serves as the poem. To participate, just create pwoermds this month. The goal should be one pwoermd a day, but you can do more, and there's no rule about skipping any number of days. Just make or choose words and call them pwoermds.
I'll be posting mine from four countries (minimum) this year, so stay tuned.
