NEW BLOG

We’ve started a new blog to celebrate poets and poetry and will now be accepting poems from poets, worldwide. I’d like our followers to be the first ones to contribute. Send  published or unpublished poems, no more than three (3) and no longer than 40 lines, cut and pasted into the body of an email, (absolutely no attachments) to, poetlaureate@comcast.net and upon acceptance, I will put it on the new poetry blog. PLEASE go to http://www.pikespeakpoetlaureates.wordpress.com and sign up to be a follower AND suggest the site to other poets and devotees:
Criteria: Avant-garde, traditional, free verse, blank verse, formatted, haiku etc. BUT NO religion, political rants, si-fi.
ALSO: include a 3-4 sentence rap about yourself. your work, books.
PRIVACY: I will not give out any email addresses. IF a follower wants more info about you, where to get your books, etc, I will forward their request to you and you can email to them.
REMEMBER: many magazine and internet publishers consider a poem that has appeared in a blog as “previously published.”
