Looking for a Creative Outlet?

 Look no further! 

I'm 'amped' to remind you of my bright idea!

Plug into my 10·10 Poetry Anthology!

As I mentioned in my New Year's Day post, to celebrate my 10 year Blog Birthday






I am accepting poetry submissions for my:

10·10 Poetry Anthology 

(celebrating 10 in 10 different ways) 





For this independently published project, I am looking for unpublished, original poems in all forms (written in English) that appeal to all audiences (children and/or adults) in the following 10 categories:

  •  tenacity
  • 10 more minutes
  • ten little fingers/ten little toes
  • 10 points to Gryffindor*
  • tension
  • I tend to...
  • tenderness
  • take 10
  • I wouldn't touch that with a 10-foot pole
  • tentative

I plan to include 10 poems from each of the 10 categories to end up with 100 poems

*I've contacted JK Rowling's website to make sure I can use the word Gryffindor... I haven't heard back. If it is a no-go due to copyright/trademark, I'll change this category. Fingers crossed.





  •  your poem(s)
  • an indication of which category it fits
  • your contact info 

…to me, Bridget Magee at: 10.10.weewords.submissions@gmail.com

WHEN WILL YOU HEAR BACK: Successful poets will be contacted by the end of June 2021


PAYMENT: Accepted poems will receive a one-time honorarium of $10/poem upon publication. 

You are welcome to share this submission opportunity with any and all poets you know. The more submissions the merrier (and the better the anthology).

Today's punny poem is ME telling YOU,


go ahead, submit watt 

you've currently got

it can't hertz

Thanks for this publishing opportunity. Are you accepting any submissions by kids?

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks for asking, Margaret. After a lot of thought, unfortunately I've decided accept submission from adult poets only. Being as this is my first anthology and it is a paying market, I feel I need to limit the scope of my talent. Who knows, maybe my next anthology will be by and for kids - I love that idea! :)

How pun . . . I mean fun . . . :D. I'll help spread the word. Happy 10th Blogiversary!

Carmela Martino said...

Thanks for the reminder, Bridget. Your anthology sounds fun! I'm working on a couple of poems I'm hoping to submit.

Linda B said...

I haven't forgotten, just have my days filled, Bridget. I will try, & I have a note about it! Hugs!

Alan j Wright said...

Thank you for providing this spark of an opportunity to share the joy of poetry Bridget. I'll go ten to the dozen to see what I can find in my unpublished file. It's all quite tenable...

What a creative and generous way to celebrate 10 years of your blog, Bridget! I missed the original announcement, so I'm so glad you shared it again. Your punny poem is groan worthy! Love it!

Linda Mitchell said...

Ha! Love your reminder. I have shared your call with my critique group. They are reading some drafts I hope to polish and send to you within a week or so. I love how you always move forward with poetry!
If you happen to have a way to send me a photo of a Swiss Ox (not cow or steer) I'd love it for my 2021 Ox project. No pressure and no hurry...it's going on all year.

Thank you for this fun reminder! Putting 10 on my next week's list to think about and maybe write!

Ruth said...

Thanks for the reminder! I saved your first announcement to get back to, but I haven't gotten back to it!

Kay said...

What a fun way to celebrate 10 years of your blog! I'm pondering what might come...

Wonderful, Carmela! I look forward to reading your work. :)

Bridget Magee said...

Yippee! I'm glad you are keeping my anthology on your radar, Linda! Can't wait to read your words. :)

Bridget Magee said...

Woot! Can't wait to see what you find ten drawers down, Alan! :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Molly! I'm glad I decided to repost my call for submissions so that people like YOU, who missed it the first time can join the fun. And yes, I'm all about the groan of puns...just ask my daughters! :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks for sharing my call out, Linda! I look forward to reading your work when it arrives.
Sure, I'll keep a look out for pictures of Swiss Ox and send what I find your way. :)

Bridget Magee said...

Fabulous, Laura! I'm excited to see what you ten-tatively come up with! :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank YOU, Ruth, for keeping my anthology in mind. I look forward to reading your words. :)

Bridget Magee said...

Perfect, Kay! I eagerly await the product(s) of your ponderous ways... :)

Bridget Magee said...

Yahoo, Michelle! Your words will be welcomed when they arrive. :)
