Word Craft Poetry & Colleen Chesebro back in one blog

The last couple of days I’ve been moving posts to Word Craft Poetry from colleenchesebro.com. I will delete that blog in the next few days. I have quite a few places to update in the meantime. If you come across a link that doesn’t work, please let me know. Thanks.

Ever since I deleted all those posts done in the old editor, everything seems to run smoother. How cool is that?

There were so many broken links on posts between 2014 and 2016 that I deleted most of the posts. Many of the people I knew then have long since left the blogging world.

I was brutal. I did not know how many posts I’d re-blogged back in the day. (But they’re gone). That’s what we did, then. We shared each other’s posts all over the place. That’s not the case anymore. Most people don’t even have their blogs linked to social media. For social sharing and community, the blogs are enough. I get that.

Since 2012, I’ve had a Twitter account under @ColleenChesebro. I’ll just add WordCraftPoetry to the description. The WordCraftPoetry Twitter account will go away. Please follow me @ColleenChesebro.

Things might be rough this week with the blog cleanup. This is a heads up! Hang in there with me. I’ll get it fixed.

A published author, Colleen is also an editor of “Word Weaving, a Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse, also found on wordcraftpoetry.com. Colleen’s mission is to bring the craft of writing syllabic poetry to anyone who thinks they can’t be a poet. Recently, she created the Double Ennead, a 99-syllable poetry form for the Carrot Ranch literary community at carrotranch.com. Colleen’s poetry has appeared in various anthologies and journals including “Hedgerow-a journal of small poems,” and “Poetry Treasures1 & 2” a collection of poetry from the poet/author guests of Robbie Cheadle on the “Treasuring Poetry” blog series on “Writing to be Read." Colleen published “Word Craft: Prose & Poetry, The Art of Crafting Syllabic Poetry,” which illustrates how to write various syllabic poetry forms used in her Tanka Tuesday challenges; and a collection of poetry, flash fiction, and short stories called, “Fairies, Myths & Magic: A Summer Celebration,” dedicated to the Summer Solstice.
