I was excited to read your poetry this week. Remember, if you’re having a hard time finding inspiration, the poetry Oracle (magnetic poetry) might be enough to get you started on writing your poem. With the introduction of prose poetry and freestyle poetry, this first of the month challenge is now more inclusive to poets who find that syllabic poetry stifles their creativity. ❤

Submissions are now closed for the first edition of the wordweavingpoetryjournal.com. We will be sending out emails to the poets whose poetry was accepted. Stay in touch! Follow Word Weaving on Twitter @word_weaving.

See you tomorrow for the new challenge!

      1. That’s what I have found out about working. I signed on as Executive Director of our social studies organization after I was president. It was mor like a secretarial position and way too much work and stress. I don’t think the new president ever forgave me. The next two or three people after me didn’t stay long either. They had both retired. It’s hard to accept the stress if you don’t have to work.
