Wee-Sources: Poetry Pep Up, Puppies, and More!

This week's Wee-Sources are an eclectic mix
of a poetry wee-source, a submission opportunity, and PUPPIES!

First up, Pep Up!










 Poetry Pep Up is a week of online poetry challenges brought to you by Poetry Friday member and poet and educator extraordinaire Kathryn Apel. It is a program for beginning poets, expierenced poets and everyone in between. You can write for yourself or join others on social media with #poetrypepup. It runs for five days beginning Monday 1 June.
To join the fun email your interest to Trudie Leigo:
t(dot)leigo(at)cqu(dot)edu(dot)au or check out Kathryn Apel's website.
I've already signed up and can't wait for the Poetry Pep Up prompt on Monday! Join me!

Next, a Submission Opportunity!






 For all you nature loving writers, Tiny Seed Literary Journal is accepting submissions. "Tiny Seed is an online nature-focused literary journal publishing short fiction, poetry, art, and photography by established and emerging writers & artists."
The submission guidelines can be found here.
I'm going to submit, how about you?


Lastly, PUPPIES!
Proud mama.
Look at that face!
One of Joe's colleague's dog had puppies! The breed is Bolonka Zwetna. Yeah, we hadn't heard of it either. Apparently they don't shed and they only get to be about 10 lbs. Aren't they adorable? We thought so too. So much so that we actually thought about getting one...for about 32 seconds! Then we thought about Smidgey:











I don't think this 10+ year old gal has it in her to deal with a new puppy.

And the price! 2200CHF/each! Nope.

We got Smidgey as a puppy for $200 from the Humane Society. (including her crate)

But alas, puppy pictures bring me so much joy. (Almost as much joy as baby pictures.) Plus the pictures are free and Smidgey doesn't get jealous. Win-win!

Here is the handful of cute that I used as the prompt for today's poem:




















fuzzy
warm
tiny form

soft
squeaks
how she speaks

puppy
heap
is not cheap

couple
grand
in one hand
