Since 2012, Vince Gotera has made the most of the month of April, writing new poems every day, in response to multiple NaPoWriMo and Poem-a-Day prompts. The Coolest Month brings together the best of those efforts, with a poem for each day of the month. The resulting collection is often funny, sometimes heartbreaking, and always an impressive display of poetic chops.

For poets, April really is the coolest month. And this is a very cool collection of poems inspired by April poetry prompts from multiple sources. Read the poems, check out the prompts that inspired them, and then, who knows? Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own!
