My Dearest Friends,
After some much needed rest following the book launch last week, I have chosen a new event for the month of September to celebrate #1 Amazon New Realease Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow and each of you.
Here is my invitation to you.
Beginning today, and lasting until September 23, I am inviting you to submit a poetic response to your favorite poem from Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow. The poetic response must be in the written word, and can be a poem or a piece of prose.
Please submit your poetic response to email@example.com
In your email, please include the following:
- Your name, or Pename.
- Your website URL, and/or social media username.
- The title of your favorite poem from Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow.
- The title of your poetic response.
- Your poetic response. Please add your poetic response to the body of the email. No written word attachments, please. You may, however, submit a photo to accompany your poetic response. Please include the photo credit with the image.
Once received, I will, for a timespan of 30 days and up to 30 poetic responses, post your pieces on my blog. I am accepting these poetic responses on a first-received basis.
It is my intention to post everyday for 30 days, yet there may be times, due to other obligations, where I need to miss a day, and post two or more poetic responses on the following day. Either way, I will post your 30 poetic responses to this blog in 30 days.
I will let you know at least 24 hours prior to the posting of your poetic response, so you know when it will be published.
Though I know all of your submissions will resonate with me, at the end of the 30 days, I will select the 5 poetic responses that resonated with me most, and send these poets/writers a signed copy of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow.
This event will also serve as the basis for a weekly prompt idea I have, which will launch at the conclusion of this collaboration.
Remember, submissions open today, and will remain open for two weeks, closing at 11:59 PM PT (USA) on September 23.
I will begin posting your submissions on September 24.
I look forward to reading your poetic responses.
If you have questions, please email me at the email address listed above.
All my love and blessings,
