Dear April Fools
Because it’s what one does on April Fool’s day, let’s be epistolary pranksters! An epistolary poem, also called a verse letter, is simply a poem in the form of an epistle or letter. Think up a prank to play on some good sport in the form of a letter. Epistolary poems can take any form, from couplets to lists, rhyming and free verse. So take a few moments to push some poetic elements and/or impose a form on your prank.
If you’re feeling naughty, send your epistolary poem…
Don’t forget to say “April Fools” after!
Set your timer for 7 minutes
Don’t think about it too much; just do it!
