With a New Year upon us Poets United is ready to hit the ground running. Our In box is spilling over since we were all on vacation and taking a break so it will take a few days to wade through those emails. For those folks who wish to be added to the Blog Roll and for those who have submitted poems for consideration in our upcoming Anthology please know we are not ignoring you and now that the time with family and holidays has passed we will soon be contacting you.
Also there will be a few minor changes at the very beginning of this year. We will be discontinuing our Poem of the Week and Blog of the Week posts (we are considering posting this on Facebook instead in a minor format). Mary Kling is going to take some time for herself and focus on her writing. We greatly appreciate her dedication and time to this daunting task and now that she is stepping away from it we feel it’s the right time to discontinue. If the opportunity presents itself please make sure to give her a big thank you for her wonderful efforts. Mary is not leaving us though. She will be helping with other menacing tasks that can be found behind the scenes at Poets United such as our upcoming and highly anticipated Second Anthology.
The proposed schedule for 2012 is as follows:
Sunday - The Poetry Pantry
Monday – Open Day
Tuesday – Midnight Snack / Vice Versa (Posts a minute after Midnight on Monday)
Wednesday – Interviews
Thursday – The Thursday Think Tank
Friday – I wish I’d Written this
Saturday – Classic Poetry
We are currently looking for a few folks to help on Facebook as we intend to make that page a little more active. If you have any interest in this please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like someone who would be interested in posting a Poem a Day and or a Poet a Day.
Poets United is such a major success and wonderful community because of the people who participate in it. This means if you are reading this then you are one of the reasons this community thrives. We look forward to the New Year and can’t wait to see what wonderful poetry and fun we all get to share.
Thank you for all you do for Poets United!
