Frequently Asked Questions

What is Lexington Poetry Month?

Lexington Poetry Month (#LexPoMo) is a month-long celebration of all things poetry in Lexington, Kentucky. Everyone in the community is welcome to use the phrase “Lexington Poetry Month” for any events or activities.

For more information, check out our About page.

I registered last year. Do I have to register this year?

Yes. Every year requires you register because you’re agreeing to participate in a new event, much like you need to register for every marathon you enter.

You may use your same email address and log in before registering. However, you must enter a new Pen Name (if you use one), profile picture, Bio, and “Reason for Signing Up”. This is because we want your information to be up-to-date, but also because not everyone chooses to write under their real name and wants to protect their identity.

I tried signing up/submitting a poem/editing a poem and it didn’t work. What can I do?

If you experience an error, please go to the Contact page and fill out the form with as much information as you can. We will try to correct the issue as soon as we are able. Please allow up to 48 hours before sending a follow-up response.

We currently have one Lexington-based web developer working on the site and we don’t outsource our tech/customer support, so we appreciate your patience and understanding in remedying any issues.

How can I support the Lexington Poetry Month Writing Challenge?

The Lexington Poetry Month Writing Challenge has been offered free since 2013. Please check out our Support page for ways you can help keep the event running, including donating to our Patreon, sharing our site on social media, and participating in the event.
