“Word Weaving, No. 1” is Available for Pre-Order

Jules and I are excited to announce that today, September 1, 2021, the first edition of Word Weaving is available for pre-order! Customers who pre-order the Kindle book will receive the content on the release date of 10/01/2021.

Creating the Kindle version of Word Weaving was important to us because we wanted to make the poetry journal affordable for everyone. We kept the costs low on the print version of the book, as well. The print book will be available on October 1, 2021.

Royalties earned from the sale of this journal will be used to fund a syllabic poetry contest with cash prizes (Amazon Gift Cards) on Word Craft: Prose & Poetry to be determined at a later date. The syllabic poetry contest will be held in 2022.

Many thanks to the poets who made this first issue a success. We’re proud to showcase your work. The theme of the “Moons of Autumn” is exactly what everyone needs to get into the spirit of Autumn.

Best Regards,

Colleen M. Chesebro and JulesPaige, Editors

Word Weaving Submissions are Open

Who’s ready to write syllabic poetry? Submissions are open for the first edition of Word Weaving, a Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse until July 15, 2021. Isn’t it time to get your poetry published?

We publish haiku, senryu, haiga, gogyohka, tanka, tanka prose, haibun, cinquain poetry including any cinquain variations, Etheree, nonet, shadorma, Badger hexastich, Abhanga, and Diatelle syllabic poetry forms.

We are looking for poetry that moves us, whether from up-and-coming writers or established greats. We seek work that captures us from the first sentence and doesn’t let go. Make your poetry memorable, so it commands our attention whether by its intellectual vision, emotional honesty, or spiritual wholeness.

We welcome and encourage work from writers of every nationality, race, religion, sexuality, and gender, including all writers with unique abilities as we are all differently abled, and writers whose perspectives and experiences are often under-represented in the literary world. We would like to think that writers in ‘Masters of Fine Arts’ programs would allow those with less experience to have the ability to have more exposure here and would kindly refrain from submissions.

Please read the sample poetry HERE so you know what we are looking for. When you’re ready, follow the directions on the SUBMISSIONS page.
