National Poetry Month Writing Prompt 25/30

National Poetry Month Writing Prompt 25/30

Hello YCA Fam,

April is National Poetry Month, and many poets choose to write one poem each day during April to celebrate the occasion. This year, we are going to be posting a writing prompt every day during April to help you with this writing challenge. Many of these prompts were developed by the YCA Artistic team for our weekly writing workshop, Check The Method. If you write poems to these prompts, share them on social media and tag us (@youngchiauthors on Twitter & @youngchicagoauthors on Instagram).
 
Here is prompt number 25, which uses a poem from Evie Shockley:

List:

Historic texts you associate with one or more of your countries
Songs you consider your own personal anthem
Texts that attempt to enforce laws or rules on you
People you want to shout out in your national anthem
Historic events you want to shout out in your national anthem
Animals you want to shout out in your national anthem
Nature/ landmarks that you want to shout out in your national anthem
