The Writer’s Online Poetry Spotlight

OK, so I’m posting one more time before signing off for a few days. This just came in to my e-mailbox, and I wanted to spread the word.

“Poets are invited to submit a poem for The Writer‘s Online Poetry Spotlight. One poem per spotlight session will be selected for expert critique by several award-winning poets. Each session will be online for about one month. The critique will include suggestions as well as comments citing the poem’s strengths. Guest poets will address form, poetic devices, sound, sensory elements and style, and will offer purely constructive comments.”

You need not be a magazine subscriber to submit. Poets whose work is selected for critique will receive a one-year subscription to The Writer. The best Spotlight submission posted on the magazine’s Web site in 2006 will receive $100.

Submit one poem by March 1; the first poem and critiques will be posted in the “premium subscriber” forum area of the magazine’s Web site by April 1, 2006 (in time for National Poetry Month).

See the full announcement for more information and submission instructions.
