During this upcoming month, Zeitgeist Literary Magazine and its members will be participating in National Poetry Writing Month, a creative writing project held annually in April. Participants write a poem each day for one month.
All our club members will participate and submit their poems, which will be viewed through our website.
Check out the “NaPoWriMo” page to access a poem for each day of the month! It will be uploaded daily with new content!
We’re excited to share our joint issue with Elipsis, our school’s literary magazine in Spanish. It’s dedicated to this year’s Seniors, who have had to deal with a very different ending than the one they expected. We hope you enjoy this bilingual edition from the safety of your home and that you all stay safe and healthy in these difficult times!
Prompt #29: Write a poem about your interpretation of abstract art.
When a painter yields colors When a writer yields characters When a poet yields rhythms When a sculptor yields realism When an artist yields Control And all that’s left is You Do you run? Do you look away? Do you close your eyes? Do you stare? Do you… stare?
