For the 2021 November PAD Chapbook Challenge, poets are tasked with writing a poem a day in the month of November before assembling a chapbook manuscript in the month of December. Today’s prompt is to write a correspondence poem.

It’s time for another poem-a-day challenge. It’s free and anyone can jump in, play, and poem along (guidelines here). So let’s do this already!

For today’s prompt, write a correspondence poem. The correspondence could be to yourself (future, past, or present self) or somebody else. Of course, correspondence means more than communication via letters, so it could also be a poem about a connection or similarity.

Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.
