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.

Introducing: Word Weaving—A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse

Word Weaving began as a creative experiment between two poetic friends, Colleen Chesebro and JulesPaige, birthed from our combined love for writing syllabic poetry on Word Craft: Prose & Poetry at wordcraftpoetry.com. Those Tanka Tuesday poetry challenges got us thinking. What if we published a yearly poetry journal of syllabic verse to encourage emerging poets?

Jules and I are excited to contribute to the writing community. Our aim is to be a small, online, and print poetry journal that shares thoughtful syllabic poetry with uplifting fresh voices while supporting established ones. There are no submission fees. Read our submissions page to learn more.

The proceeds from the sale of this journal will be used to sponsor a yearly poetry contest on Word Craft: Prose & Poetry at wordcraftpoetry.com to be announced in 2022. Prizes will be determined at a later date. We will keep the cost of the ebook and the print book low enough to make it affordable for all poetry lovers.

Submissions Open May 15, 2021, when we will announce the theme of the first edition. Sign up for our email below so you don’t miss the date.

Thanks for embarking on this poetic journey with us. We look forward to reading your submissions.

Kindly,

Colleen M. Chesebro & JulesPaige
