Reason for signing up:

I love a good challenge! I participated in LexPoMo last year. While I didn't post a poem every day, I wrote one every day. This practice is grueling (for me) but can pull out some good poems. Notice I said "can."

Poems Submitted This Year:


NOTE: Because poets have the ability to hide their badges and because registrations on LexPoMo.com only started in 2017, this may not represent an accurate portrayal of poems published by their associated poets, badges assigned to a poet, a poet's participation in the Writing Challenge, or anyone's relationship to Lexington Poetry Month, the Writing Challenge, or any other events, organizations, or persons.

To find a particular poem, please use the search bar at the top or bottom of the page. If you are a poet and see something missing, inaccurate, or incomplete, please reach out to us on our Contact page.
