This last year has been filled with much change both personally and professionally. I moved from my home of 19 years and Two Sylvias Press found an incredible office space with a view of both Seattle and the ferry. We're thrilled!
Because of that, my blog has drifted into the area of "things I forget to do..." But in this next year, I hope to either move towards more writing here or on my space at Medium here:
through my newsletter here: www.tinyletter.com/agodon
BUT I have been busy! Mostly at Two Sylvias Press, which brings me to what I'd love to share with you, two things that you may be interested in:
The first is the Two Sylvias Press Wilder Series Book Prize for Women Over 50!
We currently have a call for submissions open for a full-length poetry book manuscript for women over 50. Deadline: November 30, 2016.
The Wilder Series Book Prize is open to women over 50 years of age (established or emerging poets) and includes a $1000 prize, publication by Two Sylvias Press, 20 copies of the winning book, and a vintage, art nouveau pendant. Women submitting manuscripts may be poets with one or more previously published chapbooks/books or poets without any prior chapbook/book publications. (We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified.)
All manuscripts will be considered for publication.
And the second is something new and fun for December-- An ONLINE Advent Calendar of Poetry Prompts (I kid you not!) created by Two Sylvias Press:
Each day, you click on the number to reveal a new poetry prompt! You can look back at prompts, but you can't open them all at once--just like an advent calendar!
Makes a great gift too!
Oh and here's a sample prompt:
So while I may have been away from this blog, I've still been productive in other parts of life.
Hoping this finds you writing and settling into fall wonderfully!
