The ‘Muses And Metaphor’ National Poetry Month Kick Off offers a poetry prompt for April.

Throughout April they’ll feature 140-character twitted poems submitted by NPR fans. Tweet your poems using #TMMPoetry, or send them to the Write Group and we’ll tweet them for you on your behalf.

“This format — especially the 140 characters — forces you to get to a deeper truth and, whether you do it for yourself or you do it for someone else, it’s a really interesting exercise what pops out of your brain in that context.” – Fernando Espuelas, managing editor of The Fernando Espuelas Show on Univision.
