For once in my life I’m planning ahead with my writing. I’m going to do something different for the month of August. Is there anyone out there that would be interested in having a piece of their writing featured on The Ink Owl?
This is open to anyone and everyone who follows my blog or comes across this randomly. I think the more diverse the writing group the more interesting August will be.
Since I’ve had a theme for just about every month
I would like submissions contain an essence of fantasy as well as reflectthis prompt:
“Into the deep I plunge.”
Submissions can be short stories, poetry, journal entries, or thoughts. Short stories, journal entries, and thoughts must be between 300 and 1700 words. Poem should have no more than 600 words. Submissions can be previously posted or written, you don’t have to write whole new pieces if you don’t want to.
**As a courtesy to my younger or more sensitive readers, please do not use graphic language or excessive profanity.**
Each post will feature a short blurb about you and will contain a link to your site. Please indicate the top 8 tags you would like used.
Answer these three questions about yourself:
1. Where you are from.
2. You favorite: piece of writing writing/book/literature.
3. In no more than two sentences, why you love to write.
Photos are more than welcome, and encouraged as long as they do not contain graphic content (i.e. nudity, pornography, violence, self-harm, and the like).
You can submit pieces via email. Send them to:
Subject line: August Submission
I need about 30-ish pieces and will take submissions up until July 15th. Spread the word by commenting below if you are interested and sharing with your fellow bloggers.
Hey everyone! I’ve got some exciting news! It’s small, yet big at the same time. A month ago, on a whim, I decided to try my hand at Haiku writing.
A fellow blogger, Amanda McCoy, introduced me to Master Haiku. It is a website based out of Japan that, among numerous other things, celebrate Haikus. They have world renowned poets that teach and write Haikus, but also critique and feature poetry submitted from around the world.
Now, a month later, I have a Haiku being featured on their website! Out of 97 different countries and hundreds of submissions they picked one of my Haikus to be featured!
I’m one of five Americans that had their Haiku chosen to be featured with 33 other poets from around the world.
Follow this link to read all the beautiful poetry that was submitted (and feel free to cheer when you see Michael Erickson/USA up there).
So so so happy! Thank you Amanda!
PS if you want to try your hand at Haiku writing follow this link for their contests for June. Hurry contests end on the 18th and 30th of this month!
