International Poetry Month 2017 is open for submissions.

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.
