Where News is the Muse
Good luck with your new venture!
Excellent! Will be submitting for sure! :o)
Thanks for the good wishes! We're putting up four poems today as 'examples' just to get everyone inspired!
Are we allowed to submit poems that deal with issues generally, or do they need to match something specifically?
All the best with your wonderful new venture! I am inspired and hope to contribute a wee something soon.
I read through the poems published so far. I am impressed.Good stuff here, hope it continues on the same level.
Jessica - If it's a topical issue that can be loosely linked to an event/issue in the news, that would be good. This way, we maintain the news-related tone of the blog.Nana Jo - Many thanks. We look forward to receiving contributions, any time.Friko - Thank you. Clare and I are really pleased with the way things have gone today. Are you thinking of offering something?
This is fantastic! Congratulations. Beautifully conceived, and, judging by today's poems, many riches in store for us readers!
Congratulations! Excellent pieces, all.
