Fandom Friday: Bad Poetry Week

Welcome to Fandom Friday, a weekly blog meme hosted by yours truly. I know, I know, today isn't a Friday, but this week is special. It's Bad Poetry Week!

Bad Poetry Day is August 18, and to celebrate, the Fangirl Initiative is going to be publishing a fandom-themed bad poem or two each day leading up to it. Since we missed last week, this Fandom Friday is going to last for two weeks and... drumroll, please... we'll be featuring YOUR bad poems! Yay! Anyone who links up between now and August 18 will have a chance to have their bad poems featured not only on the site, but on all of our social media platforms as well!

What is Fandom Friday?

Fandom Friday is where you, our awesome readers, get involved with The Fangirl Initiative community! Every Friday, we'll post a question or topic that spans all fandoms—books, movies, music, anything—because we want to see what you love!

How do I join?

Easy! Head on over to your blog, answer the question however you want to, and then add your link. Once you've done that, check out some of the other links, maybe leave a comment or two, and enjoy the camaraderie that comes with being a part of a fandom.

Make sure to give us a link back, whether through a traditional link or this nifty button:

As we mentioned earlier, this week's Fandom Friday is dedicated to fandom-themed bad poetry. What is a bad poem? Anything you want it to be! A lazy limerick, a horrible haiku, an alliterative paragraph that just involved you hitting enter a bunch of times... anything. To provide inspiration, we'll be posting a few bad poems each day on the site and on social media.

Follow us! On Twitter. On Facebook. On Instagram. On Tumblr.

Remember, if you link up between now and Friday, August 18, there's a chance your bad poems will be featured! (DM us or leave a comment if you'd like us to tag you on social media, and provide us with your links.) Here are a few questions to get you started:

What fandom(s) do you know the most about?
What can you write a poem about? A character? A plot point?
What do you love most about it?
What do you absolutely want in your poem?
