Hello all. We decided not to post a featured poem, instead this is just to remind you of a few things going on with us at the moment.
First up, suppose the main piece of news at the moment, is that we have a collection out on Wednesday 20th Feb (this Wednesday) for sale – “Thinkulations” by Paul D Hegginson. Available for the reasonable price of £4 (paperback from Lulu.com) and £2.99 (Kindle/Ebook) this is a collection of 50 poems from the last 10 years on the subjects of life, love, the nature of being and the nature of the poet themselves. Featuring cover artwork by the extremely talented Lucy Hartshorn (Lucy Illustrates on Facebook), this is a collection of poems anyone should have in their collection. Buy a copy and help us support new writers.
Secondly, we are still looking for submissions for our Western Haiku anthology, you have until the end of the month to get these in. This promises to be another essential poetry collection.
Also, we’re always looking for submissions of your best poetry for this site, so if you fancy getting your work out there and being one of our featured writers, please send your best poetry to firstname.lastname@example.org
And last, but by no means least, we have a crowdfunding campaign running on Indiegogo.com currently standing at $166, we’re aiming for about $5,000 to help with future publications and turning ourselves into a full-blown Indie publishing house.

We feel that now is the time for proper indie publishers to step up and get into the publishing market, what with the big publishing houses making ever safer decisions and the self-publishing market (we’re not dissing self-published authors, some have been very successful) being difficult for new authors to make headway in.
We want to help who we feel are the most exciting new writers of this generation to get themselves a foot on the ladder to being successful authors. Consider getting involved and funding our campaign, and be part of our, and our writers, success.
That’s all for now, have a brilliant weekend (and look out tomorrow for another of our “Weekend poetry Readings”
