Wee Blog Birthday Submission Opportunity

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For this independently-published project, I am looking for unpublished, original poems in all forms (written in English) in the following 10 categories/prompts: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...


take 10

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


  •  your poem(s)
  • an indication of which category it fits
  • your contact info 
  • to me, Bridget Magee at: 10.10.weewords.submissions@gmail.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?)
