Poetry Carnival!

Given the growing success of new carnivals like the Philosophers' Carnival and the Storyblogging Carnival, I've decided it's high time for aspiring blogging poets to have our own carnival. I'll write more about why I think a Poetry Carnival can be a good thing, but for now, here are some purpose statements/ideas:

The Poetry Carnival will:

  • help to make visible to the general blogosphere the work of poets in our midst.

  • foster an increased appreciation for poetry.

  • most importantly, will expose various poets to each other's work, which will serve to create a creative community intent on always improving itself.



The first Poetry Carnival will appear at my blog, Philosophical Poetry, on 24 January 2005.

Please send all entries for the first Poetry Carnival to danweasel-at-gmail-dot-com, with the following information:

Title of Blog:
URI of Blog:
Title of Poem (or just the first line or a number):
Permalink URI of the Poem:
Number of Lines:
Key Line or lines (1-4) to excerpt:


I hope this goes well. If you come across this page, even if you're not interested in submitting a poem, I'd be much obliged if you would help promote it on your own blog. Thanks.

Andrew

Andrew,
I was thinking this very same thing but you beat me to the punch so instead of competing I'll join you in this carnival.

There was a man that had credit,
His foreeclosure he wanted to edit.
The mortgage was late,
And I can not state.

And that is whyI have said it.
