Promise of Light Publications Call for Submissions

I'm excited to announce that I've been invited to be co-editor at Promise of Light Publications, a new and upcoming publisher. Our mission, in the words of the creator and editor James Watkins, is as follows:
Our intent, as a publisher, is to publish nothing but poetry and prose
of the highest quality and literary standards. If it takes the reader on
a journey, touches their soul, activates their sympathetic nervous
systems, transports them to another place all while listening to the
rain, and the hum of the world fades into its background, this is
what we intend to publish.

Here at the site we intend to provide words, images, and sounds
to entice our readers', to enhance their experience in every sense.

This opportunity comes with the chance to work with some of my favorite people, namely James, Mary, and Dave. I'm really looking forward to working with them on some literary projects. There is already a Chapbook Competition, a Poetry Competition, a Poetry Magazine called "Flowers and Vortexes" and we're looking for submissions of high-quality Haiku and Tanka.

  1. BUAWHAHA!!! IT'S ALIVE!! So glad to see your face, by dear. I'm working with the greatest group of people. :-)

  2. "And a new day will dawn for those who stand long. And the forests will echo with laughter."

  3. Very cool E! I'm excited for you, and for James and Mary and Dave. Sounds like a really great project.

  4. Excellent, Ms. Co-Editor. How exciting.

    By the way, I have enjoyed your comments over at my site and just between you and me (and the thousands reading your blog), I didn't even notice the misspelling of congratulations. :)

  5. How very cool to have a place specifically targeted to the poetic sensory experience. Can't wait to see y'all in action!
