As part of National Poetry Writing Month the Tell Me More site is collection tweeted poems under the hash tag TMMPoetry. Go and check out the website and the hash tag – they have done similar initiatives in the past with wonderful creative effect!

The 140 characters of twitter means that poets have to streamline their thought process, it lends itself nicely to the shorter forms and can be some what more challenging than writing an essay in our experience!

Another thing that is good to try is the creation of an epic poem via tweets – entire novels have been writing in little 140 character snippets so why not an epic poem?

Epic poems in this instant being very long novel length poems rather than just brilliant glittering literary gems though of course they may be those as well!

If you do not have twitter then adapt the challenge to Facebook or Google Plus, start a page up specifically for the purpose.
