Dear poets, I have caught the bug! Not the bug that drives us to write voraciously from pleasure ~ but the blasted internet detonator that has been going about lately! The upshot is that my web-site and emails attached to it, are down, crashed, disappeared into an internet instant of eradication! Believe me, I am working very hard to put it right!
Some of you have been trying to contact me with submissions. Please use this address: firstname.lastname@example.org Good old gmail!
I may have to extend the deadline for submissions because of this. I hope those of you who have taken the time to make submissions will be patient.
The poetry I am looking for is about MOTHER! In my humble opinion, a poem should speak to the collective, say it beautifully, succinctly or challengingly and put into words something we all feel. It was my original intention that the anthology should celebrate the qualities of MOTHER ~ whether motherly feelings towards your own child or feelings about the beauty, wonder, splendour, joy, appreciation, friendship, love, importance of mothers or mothering in general. Mother can also refer to Earth.
Before making your submission, please ask yourselves the following:
Does your poem describe collective feelings? Have you expressed something pertinent to the many?
This anthology should celebrate MOTHER! I am looking for a hug from the page!
