Yes, this week I’ll be showing off Michael Lee Johnson, Sandra Henry, Richard Stevenson, Lory La Selva.
One of the prompts sometime this month is to submit one of your poems to a poetry site taking submissions. Poetry Pasta counts. 😊 We’re very easygoing, send what you feel good about having written. We don’t care about “previously published”, send us where it was previously published, along with a bio and a picture if you want and it’s up there with your words 😊
Even though National Poetry month is over, Poetry Pasta is STILL showing off poets and their words on Wednesdays.
One of the poetry prompts for this April will be to submit your poem (hint: it’ll probably be on a Friday and be a 2 day prompt PLUS the weekend. You could submit your poem here 😉
So submit one today 🙂
I don’t why I thought I had enough time yesterday to show off a new poet. With it being Valentine’s Day, there was quite a lot to do that had nothing to do with poetry. Oh! today is Cheap Chocolates Day 😉
The publishing schedule WILL BE Wednesdays. Poetry Pasta is open for submissions 🙂 All poems posted on Poetry Pasta will be visible on Twitter where Poetry Pasta has a presence, @PoetryPasta1 for MORE showing off poets and their words.
Also, please feel free to post your poems/haikus and poetry links (it’s ok to promote your poetry/writing page, just don’t overdo it) on the Poetry Pasta Facebook page (www.facebook/poetrypasta) Please don’t post anything hateful or hurtful, EVERYONE is welcome there.
Welcome to Poetry Pasta 🙂
Submit YOUR E-Book in PDF form or just send in a nice PDF of your poems and your words will be free for everyone and anyone to download for free from the Poetry Superhighway for 24 hours on December 1 🙂
