Today is Wee Words for Wee Ones' 10th Blog Birthday!
On 1/1/2011 this wee blog was born:
|They grow up so fast...|
And being that I've always had an affinity for the number 10 because I am the 10th kid of 10 kids in my family (Irish-Catholics, much?) and that I was born in the 10th month (October) I've decided to celebrate my blog's 10th birthday by putting out a CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS for my 10·10 Poetry Anthology due to be published in October 2021!
|Tentative cover art.|
The 10·10 Poetry Anthology celebrates 10 in 10 different ways.
For this independently-published project, I am looking for unpublished, original poems in all forms (written in English) in the following 10 categories/prompts:
10 more minutes
ten little fingers/ten little toes
10 points to Gryffindor
I tend to...
I wouldn't touch that with a 10-foot pole
I plan to include 10 poems from each of the 10 categories to end up with 100 poems.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 12 March 2021 (10 weeks from now)
Successful poets will be contacted by the end of June 2021
WHERE TO SUBMIT: Send:
- your poem(s)
- an indication of which category it fits
- your contact info
- to me, Bridget Magee at: email@example.com
PAYMENT: Accepted poems will receive a one-time honorarium of $10/poem upon publication.
My Bio: Behind every cute fingerprint is a strong finger. I have strong fingers. In fact, my fingerprints will be all over this blog and will be all over this anthology. I nimbly completed my MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University where I worked my fingers to the bone before starting my writing career. When not writing or teaching, my fingers can be found holding the book I am currently reading. I live with my family and crazy dog Smidgey - all of whom have me wrapped around their fingers (and paw). Fingers crossed you'll decide to submit.
I look forward to reading your top 10 poems. (see what I did there?)
