I know you have been seeing some #poemup hashtags and AVI around Twitterdom today and to be honest this started out from a casual conversation with Mr. Blake and it evolved into something bigger an idea which I think has a great and positive message.
#poemup encourages everyone to write may it be in a form of a poem, essay, short story, fan fiction, letter anything as long as it gets you to write.
A lot of people take for granted the power of words. It is a great form of release and expression. It stimulates creativity and it is therapeutic. Poetry also has a positive effect on people as we can see with our community on Twitter. We get to interact, share our thoughts and support one another.
I am very fortunate enough to have come across these three ESTEEMED POETS and their words made such a difference in my life. Once in a while I get to talk to them and they have always encouraged me to write. And they do this also for others. So with their help we are doing #poemup.
Its really simple all you have to do is every time you tweet about poems or writings just add the hashtag #poemup and well if you can reblog or share about the initiative then that would be good as well. As long as we get to spread the word, create awareness and encouragement.
The AVIs are additional ways to spread the word and if you want one I’d be more than willing to assist you with it.
To Darwin, Deidre and Beth thank you for your time and help. This is nothing without you guys and you are such an inspiration and I think I say that in behalf of everyone who reads your wonderful prose.
So let’s start to #poemup and write!
