International Poetry Month is back!
Over 2016 the power of language to damage and tear apart has never been more evident, from the Oxford’s word of the year, post-truth, to fake news, to political rhetoric around the world, to harsh exchanges between friends and families. In February of 2017 I would like to counterweight language’s destructive power and offer instead an opportunity for language to link people and places in a shared ‘neural network’ of creative exchange between readers and writers.
Are you ready? IPM 2017 is now open for submissions.
Bonnie McClellan-Broussard – editor IPM

Hi Bonnie, I’m in (the water) :-). Will send you poems for approval within this week, ciao.
This is my first time: the dates are Jan 1-feb 10, 2017, I’m guessing from other languages. Thank you. Appreciate your putting this together.
Hi and thanks for stopping by! The submission dates are Jan 1- Feb 10 of 2017. The event itself is from Feb. 1-28 with a new poem posted each day. Poems written in any language are welcome, I offer free translation into English from French, Italian, Dutch and Danish for those poets who would like a translation.
