The Life for Me

Have I mentioned how great AWP’s Writer to Writer Mentorship Program is? If you’re a writer, you owe to yourself to learn more about it: bit.ly/AWPw2w.  #AWPW2W  #awpmentorship

 

Poet’s Life

There was talk
about submission fees
journals     online vs. print
contests and publication
$25    7 hours of work.
Unspoken was the years
in quiet places
honing our craft,
so not the life imagined.
Through the screen
our eyes meet
faces lit with
twin knowledge:
“We do it for love.”
