Seeking Poetry Prompts & Exercises

2-17-2014 7-38-46 AM

We are seeking poetry prompts and exercises, essays on poetry, memoirs on interactions with poetry, and (of course) poems for the Celebrate Poetry Anthology. Publication will be in May 2014.

Anything related to poetry is welcome! Poems, poetry prompts and exercises you developed, essays on poetry, memoirs about your interactions with poetry, etc. Deadline is approaching fast! This is a great chance to get your name and your business out there!

April is National Poetry Month!

Submit up to 3 original poems, an article on writing poetry, a memoir about what poetry has meant to your life, or anything else that you have written that has to do with poetry! Perhaps you have a favorite poet or poem that you would like to write about or a memory about a class that you took in poetry. The sky is the limit – as long as it has to do with poetry!

NOTE: There is no fee for submitting. There is no payment for submissions. All submissions will receive a free digital copy of the book.  The anthology will be available for purchase in print and ebook.
