Continuing To Write & Be Involved with the Literary Community After National Poetry Month Ends

Can you believe it? Today is the last day of National Poetry Month. Hopefully you were able to get into the habit of writing a new poem if not every day, then regularly, reading more poetry and becoming involved with the literary community.

Before the month ends, consider how you will continue to be involved with the writing world. Here are some suggestions:

To become more involved with a writing community, check with your local, independent bookstores for events.

I also recommend checking out your local college or university’s English or Writing department’s website. Most schools host free readings that are open to the community.

You might consider applying for a writing conference or residency.

Continue to read, support financially and submit to literary magazines.

What else would you suggest?
