Dan Waber has initiated a wonderful project and website. By the time many of you read this blog posting, 5 of my (Ed Coletti) poems will have been added to the site. Please take a look at
This is a themed blog (poems about poetry) that will lead to a print anthology. Dan Waber invited five of his favorite poets to send him an ars poetica they'd written along with the names and email addresses of five other poets. He then invited those twenty-five poets to do the same. He then invited those hundred and twenty-five poets to do the same. He then invited...you get the picture.
Every poem submitted will appear on this blog, one per day. The print anthology will be published by Paper Kite Press when the editors (Jennifer Hill-Kaucher and Dan Waber) determine that a book length collection of the very best of these poems exists, which, at a poem a day, is likely to take a year or more.
This is not an open call for submissions. The only way to submit is to be invited as a result of a previous submission.
