NaPoWriMo is short for National Poetry Writing Month!

Every April, in celebration of National Poetry Month, we partner with the Wellesley College English Department to curate a NaPoWriMo blog featuring a new poem every day.

We encourage members of the Wellesley community to share their own poetry or their reflections on a favourite poem or poet by emailing us at with the subject line ‘NaPoWriMo’.

You can read past blog posts here, on our separate NaPoWriMo site. However, beginning in Spring 2019, we will be posting all poems and reflections on this main site under the tag ‘NaPoWriMo’. Keep an eye out to discover amazing new poets and poetry!
