A New Online Paper - The River

As always we here at Poets United are about the community and anything poetry. We enjoy the chance to share other communities or places for poets to mingle and submit their work. It is the belief of the folks here at Poets United that the more exposure poetry and poets get the better. Today we would like to share one of those places with you.

Announcing a New Online Paper-  by River Urke

The world of blogs is a fast growing domain of people expressing their ideas and words in multitudes of ways. Recently, a new Friday paper appeared within the sphere called The River. An online paper designed to entice people around the world out of their boxes of routine with a created array of writings and art that entertain and inform.

The idea to create The River branched from my column, Rivers Ruminations. An idea I needed help with to achieve. I reached out to my network of writing friends asking if someone would want to embark on the adventure with me. Two wonderful women came forth, Annie and Shan. We became known as The Trio.

The River is a contributing paper of writings, photography, and other art forms. Submissions are welcome. Thank You
