Poem Submissions Heads Up

11 Oct


Hello. This is a special message for those of you who have posted poems to any of We Write Poems‘ past prompts. SUBMIT ALREADY.

If you have been meaning to, but haven’t quite gotten around to it, how about right now? The deadline for submissions to the Red Wolf anthology is getting close, November 15th. That’s only a little over one month to go.  As one of the editors says, We’d really like not to stack up submissions right at the deadline date. After all, the poems are already written, yes? Go find them. Submit.

However, if you suddenly remember on November 14th that OMG! you never hit send on that email sitting in draft, hit send. We Write Poems wants as many of you who have, over the years, written for their prompts, to have a place in their first anthology and you know you want to be there, not looking at the published anthology and bemoaning the missed date. As the above editor states, this is A chance for folks to get published and acknowledged for the labors of their poetic craft. Submit.

You read this even though you have not written to a We Write Poems‘ prompt and you want to be in the anthology? You have three or four weeks worth of prompts before the deadline. Write. Post. Submit. Easy.

This link will take you directly to the guidelines. Right. Go to it.

Happy submitting.

    Submit, she says. And she adds, the quality of the poems submitted to date is something to be proud of.

    Hi Margo, How are you? I got mine sent to Irene yesterday evening. I can’t wait to see the anthology. Have a beautiful weekend.

      Pamela! I’m good and hope you are, too. The anthology will be like reading letters from friends. Such fun and so warming, in the middle of winter.

      I have your prompt open on a tab. Now I need to pull out from the world, relax, and hopefully the brain will respond. Take care, my friend.
