The Piper Poetry Month Anthology is a small collection of poems written in response to 30 prompts sent out to the community during the month of April 2020. These prompts, written by local Arizona poets, were meant to inspire, excite and comfort. Poetry is an extended discourse, spanning time and space. The poetry month anthology will serve as a living archive of some of the poetry woven into and throughout the Piper Center for Creative Writing.
