Celebrate National Poetry Month with WFDD

Poet Ashley Lumpkin reads at the NCWN 2019 Spring Conference

April is National Poetry Month, and this year, WFDD 88.5 in the Triad is offering something special: a Poetry Month Challenge!

First, sign up to receive bi-weekly poems sent directly to your e-mail inbox. These bits of inspiration alone are sure to keep us in a celebratory state of mind all month long.

Throughout April, subscribers will be invited to share their poetry with WFDD—if they feel so inspired—for the chance to be featured in the Poetry Month Collection on the WFDD website at the end of April.

This is the inaugural Poetry Month Challenge for the station. Sign-up here!
