National Poetry Month 2023 comes to a close today. I had big plans for this month and not all of them came to fruition, but I am very happy with how my Midjourney experiment went. Every day in April I wrote a line of a poem, ran it through Midjourney and posted one of the illustrations with the line on my Instagram. You can see the whole rough draft here.
I didn’t know how this would go. Halfway through the month I was bored with the whole thing, but I am glad I stuck it out. In the video I have edited the poem, so you can actually go see the original and compare how I’ve changed it. I’ve also made a few changes to the art in the video, but they are all the images the AI created for my line.
I really liked doing this, and I think I’ll try it again for another month, but this time I’ll share on Twitter. Watch the Twitter poem unfold here.
