POETS ONLINE is my online writing prompts workshop and monthly e-zine that offers poets inspiration and the opportunity to try writing and submitting a poem to the monthly writing prompt. I have been doing the site since 1998. The site now has more than a hundred prompts and an archive of more than a thousand poems.
The companion blog to Poets Online offers regular information on workshops, festivals, news of poets and poetry and a place for your comments.
Poets Online is quite social:
- We’re on Twitter @poetsonline
- we have a Facebook fan page and
- an open Facebook group for conversations about poetry, and we
- get visual on Pinterest.
My poetry project for 2014 was a daily writing practice that I titled Writing the Day. There were 365 poems in the invented ronka form that year and the poems continue on more of a weekly basis now.
3 of my poems were featured on The Writer’s Almanac in February 2019. The poems are at the end of the podcast if you want to fast forward through the news part, and a text version of each poem is also posted online.
One serious one garrisonkeillor.com/radio/twa-the-writers-almanac-for-february-16-2019/ And two that have the tongue in the cheek, at least partially.
