The CPC Thematic Attic Thursday Poetry

If you enjoy writing poetry and socializing, this is the site for you!

The “Creative Poetry Corral” began on MySpace in May of 2007 as a poetry collaboration site. (It moved to Friendbusrt in the Fall of 2010 when changes in MySpace blogging software made creative postings more difficult). The founder, "Lady 'Cheryl' Death," created an unique poetry collaboration process for her friends.

This collab or "share" is still the "flagship" CPC challenge, divided into a three-blog weekly process:

(1) "It's That Time Give Me One More Line" posts Monday evening. Here writers submit lines related to a featured weekly line, for others to use in their collab write. This remains open for additions through about 6 PM Eastern time on Wednesday.

(2) "Get Lost In The Lines With Me" is posted on Wednesday evening with the list of the week's lines from which to pick and edit in creating a collab poem.

(3) "Saturday Share," posted Friday evening and continuing through Saturday and beyond, is the place to post collab poems.

As the popularity of the "Cheryl's Poetry Collab Corral" grew, more poetry challenges were added, beginning with the "Simple Sunday Picture Challenge” featuring an artist's work for poetic inspiration.

Then came “Wonderful Wednesday,” originally designed to give various CPC Pals an opportunity to create and host their own poetry challenge.

“The CPC Meet & Greet” was (and still is) offered the first Wednesday of the month to introduce new writers to the other members of the poetry site.

On the last Wednesday each month, a “Pick-Apart-Poetry” game featured a poet from the past or present. Selections from their work were presented, from which CPC Pals are challenged to choose twenty-five words to arrange into their own new poetic expression. This quickly became a much-anticipated monthly event.

Eventually all of these venues became too much for Cheryl to manage alone. A few of the site regulars offered to take over creating and hosting individual challenges. The resulting increased flexibility led to the addition of three more weekly challenges:

“Magic Monday” explores amazing aspects of life and experience.

“Thematic Attic Thursday” sparks creative imagination with themes related to the past, present and future.

The "Friday Fling” challenges writers to try established poetry formats and sometimes to invent new ones, while writing on a specific designated weekly topic.

Now on Friendburst since the Fall iof 2010, a fully developed "Creative Poetry Corral" offers six different poetry challenges each week, providing both a creative and social site for people to be encouraged to create, socialize and enjoy.


WE OFFER:

DAILY CHALLENGES PRESENTED BY A TALENTED CREW OF HOSTS

OPPORTUNITIES FOR GUEST HOSTS IN WHICH OUR HOSTS WORK WITH VOLUNTEER POETS TO PRESENT THE VOLUNTEER'S POETIC CHALLENGE IDEA.

A WELCOMING AND ENJOYABLE SOCIAL EXPERIENCE

NB: The CPC discourages only sexually explicit (raw) or excessivly provocative or vulgar postings or comments. The site management therefore reserves the right to remove (without notice) any postings or comments which are considered inappropriate.

It's a time we like to stay cosy, close to a fireplace, with a cat at our feets, a good book, and a cup of tea or chocolate ... I love this mood ... wish you a beautiful day/evening .... Kisses ♥

C'est le moment où nous aimons rester confortablement, près du feu, un chat à nos pieds, avec un bon livre, un thé ou un chocolat ... j'adore cette ambiance ... je vous souhaite une bonne journée/ soirée ... Bisous ♥

At the window, I see the Spirit of November ... He sings through the trees, cry with the gusts of wind, and whispers at my ear 'Nature is more alive than ever' ... Beautiful week end my friends ♥

A la fenêtre, je vois l'Esprit de Novembre ... Il chante à travers les arbres, pleure avec les rafales de vent et murmure à mon oreille ' La Nature est plus vivante que jamais' ... Beau week end chers amis ♥
