Word Weaving began as a creative experiment between two poetic friends, Colleen Chesebro and JulesPaige, birthed from our combined love for writing syllabic poetry.
Here at Word Weaving, we’re excited to contribute to the writing community. Our intention is to be a small, online, and print literary journal that shares thoughtful poetry with uplifting fresh voices while supporting established ones.
The proceeds from the sale of this journal will be used to sponsor a yearly poetry contest on Word Craft ~ Prose & Poetry at wordcraftpoetry.com to be announced in 2022. Prizes will be determined at a later date.
ABOUT THE FOUNDING EDITORS
Colleen M. Chesebro is a Michigan Poet who loves crafting syllabic poetry, flash fiction, and creative fiction and nonfiction. Colleen sponsors a weekly poetry challenge, called Tanka Tuesday, on wordcraftpoetry.com where participants learn how to write traditional and current forms of syllabic poetry.
Colleen’s syllabic poetry has appeared in various other online publications. Recently, she created the Double Ennead, a 99-syllable poetry form for Carrot Ranch.
Colleen’s poetry has been accepted in various anthologies and journals including Hedgerow-a journal of small poems, and Poetry Treasures, a collection of poetry from the poet/author guests of Robbie Cheadle on the “Treasuring Poetry” blog series on Writing to be Read in 2020.
Colleen published a collection of poetry, flash fiction, and short stories called, Fairies, Myths & Magic: A Summer Celebration, dedicated to the Summer Solstice. She contributed a short story called “The Changeling,” in the Ghostly Rites Anthology 2020 published by Plaisted Publishing House.

JulesPaige is a nom de plume—because I believe words are like jewels on a page. I write to entertain myself and friends that I have found through the internet.
I started writing when I was eleven years old. My eldest grandchild will soon be turning eleven!
I’ve been published in college journals, my local newspaper, and in several books to raise money for charity. My primary love is writing and learning new poetic forms. I also enjoy flash fiction.
I’ve been published online at Pure Haiku.
For charity at Simply Elfje; Little Poems in Just Eleven Words and compiled by Elizabeth Leaper.
