PMO Wraps A Poem a Day

Al Manning

Pittsboro Writers’ Morning Out has for years met on the second third Saturday of the month at various locations in Pittsboro. Faciliated by NCWN trustee and Chatham-Lee counties regional rep Al Manning, this stalwart group welcomes frequent speakers on various topics on the craft and business of writing and supports one another in the writing life.

Every day during the month of April, Pittsboro-WMO posts a poem on their blog,, to celebrate Poetry Month. These poems are all written by writers in Chatham and Lee counties.

In 2019, eighteen writers submitted poems. Two of these were writers were new to Pittsboro-WMO and had never had anything published before!
