Poetry Invites July

Inspired By Summer in Northumberland

What inspires you about summertime?

Write a poem for Cobourg Present, our evolving eChapbook. 

This month you are invited to write a poem about summer. Let’s show our gratitude for the beach, the lake, the trails for hiking, the marina, the farm fresh produce, the festivals, and the time with family and friends. We are lucky to live in a place that thrives in summertime.

Do you have memories of summer long ago? Are there moments this month you want to capture in a poem? What are your favourite things to do in summer?

Maybe it’s a place you like to visit. Or, something that only blooms in July. How can you capture a glimpse of summer in a poem?

Let’s celebrate the spirit of summertime.

You are also welcome to revisit a prompt from an earlier month and submit a poem at any time. Click here to see the archive of prompts.
