The April Challenge will have the theme "Laugh!"; in honor of the fact that April is National Poetry Month, we are asking the participants to try their hand at a humorous poem! Prompts will be a pair of rhyming words--you may use them in the poem or in the title or just use them as inspiration.

So try your hand at a bit of funny verse, be it a limerick, a filk, a parody, a clerihew or whatever you can come up with to give us a chuckle! This article about humor in poetry might give you a few ideas!

The April challenge poems will be due Monday April 21,and will be revealed on Wednesday, April 23. Please tag your story "challenge: funny poetry" and "2014 april". Please remember to use the header template on the community profile page, and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line.

To request your prompt, please leave a comment to this post. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your elements. Or you can email the mods at aelfwina@gmail.com or virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our April challenge!
