It has been a joy to share poems with everybody each week and to have discussions about them. The Virtual Poetry Circle has been a staple here on the blog for many years, but I’ve been looking for ways to change it and incorporate greater audience participation.
To that end, I’m no longer going to showcase work found across the web from published poets.
Instead, I want to put out a call to readers and their friends who write their own poems.
I would love for anyone interested to submit a poem about resistance (broad term and doesn’t have to be about the current administration, etc.) for posting on Saturday, Feb. 4. Send 1 poem per person to savvyverseandwit AT gmail [dot] com by Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Include a short 50 word bio with any social media links you want included.
I will choose one poem to feature. Happy writing.
