We all have them: a vile verse, a crude couplet, a quatrain destined for the dump or just an embarrassing tale of woe set in poetic form. I'm now accepting more Poetic Confessions: a way to cleanse the writer's conscious. No matter how embarrassing, silly or sad your story may be, I want to hear from you. We all know that April is National Poetry Month, so we'll kick it off right by featuring some Poetic Confessions. But I can't do this alone--while I have many confessions to make, I'm sure my readers want more of a variety of confessions.
So that means I'm accepting entries of your own Poetic
Confessions. Just email your story (short or long--doesn't matter to
me). If you reference a specific poem of yours that's available
online, feel free to include the link to it. You should also include
a short (1-2 lines) bio and a link to your blog or website (free
promotion!!). Please put the words "Poetic Confessions" in
the subject line so I won't lose it in the spam folder. I cannot
guarantee that your confession will make it on the blog during the
month of April depending on the amount of submissions I get, but it
could be used at some point in the future.
From time to time we all have that poetic misstep, so go ahead and
get it off your chest. I'll start posting confessions on April 1.
Need some inspiration? Here are the confessions I posted last year:
