Thank you to everyone who has submitted you work so far. If you haven’t sent you poems in yet, there’s still a little time to get on the January schedule and start your New Year off with a publication credit.
We have a few spots reserved for some wonderful poets that have been invited share their work with all of us at Poetry Breakfast. But we’ve made sure to leave room for plenty of unsolicited poems too.
You can check our Submission Guidelines for details on submitting your work.
Currently, almost half of January is already full – and we just started accepting submissions two weeks ago! But that means there’s still room for more…and don’t forget…February will be here before we know it. So, we’re hoping your submission will keep coming in.
As for our inaugural week, January 1st – 7th, all days are still open. We’re looking to put our best foot forward and haven’t picked the poems for those days yet. If you’re looking to make it in time for the first week, you’ll need to send your submission by December 28th. Submissions received after that will be considered for later dates in January and February.
That’s it for now. Thanks again to all the poets who have submitted work.
Happy Holidays to All,
Poetry Breakfast is a new eZine/blog that will be serving a tasty new poem for breakfast every morning beginning January 1st, 2012.
Submission are needed to fill the menu and we’d love to see what you have to bring to the table.
You can catch the submission guidelines at
Feel free to pass along this request for submissions to all your word eating friends.
Poetry Breakfast will be arriving January 1st, 2012
Each morning will feature a new poem. Start your day with the words we are all so unlikely to hear in our everyday conversations. Words that are not a to-do list, not the office script, not work words, or pre-taped polite conversations. Have a few sips of syllables that connect the truth inside all of us. Nourish your soul with a language open enough to notice the beauty, pain, and wonder within and all around.
Then, you’re more than welcome to flip though the daily paper logs of politics and arrange calamities, ask strangers how they are without wanting to really know, repeat the same twenty lines with a few blanks filled in that you said at work yesterday, and the day before, and the day before, and so on.
But first, have your poetry breakfast. Goes great with that cup of coffee.
