Since everyone seemed to enjoy “Tea with Trolls” (PDF, by the way, is now available for download on the page), I did a quick poll of what you all wanted to write about next, and dragons won by a landslide. Which is fitting, since the year 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, specifically the water dragon.
I will take small poems until Wednesday December 28th about dragons and/or water and/or fire (something to warm us in the middle of winter) to prepare a post for New Year’s Day. As before, I will take up to 5, and you’re guaranteed at least one poem just for sending me something!
Theme/What to write about: Dragons and/or water and/or fire.
What form: Haiku, senryu, tanka, kyoka, gogyōka, renku, haibun, haiga (doodles most welcome!), small stones, etc.
How many: As many as you want! I will take as many as 5 and no less than 1.
When: Send them in by Wednesday, December 28th (I will wait until the whole world has reached the 28th); I will post a PDF on this blog on New Years Day.
Where to send: Either leave a comment to this post or send an email to aubriecox [at] gmail [dot] com!
Other important stuff: Things you should keep in mind/include:
• Most journals will consider these works published
• If your work is already published, include the publishing credits (it’s kind of important and a nice thing to do)
• You, as the writer/artist/poet/etc, retain the rights to you work before and after it appears on my blog/in the PDF.
• If you want me to link back, please send along the name and link of your blog/Twitter account/website/etc! Also, make sure your have your name listed as you would like for it to appear.
