Submissions for tinywords 20.2 and a new writing prompt

Summer is winding down here in the northern hemisphere and tinywords 20.1 has now ended with Ann K. Schwader’s haiku “in the space”.

The submission window for tinywords 20.2 opened on August 1st so if you haven’t yet, you still have about half of August left to send us your small poems, haiga, or brief haibun to be considered for our next issue: tinywords 20.2.

Sending work to tinywords is a simple two-step process. Just check out our Guidelines and click on the Submissions Page from Aug. 1 through Aug. 31, 2020. One month window, as usual.

To keep things lively while we work on the new issue, we present a new writing prompt. This image of a green oasis between apartment buildings was captured in Beirut, Lebanon. One thing this image might say is that nature is adaptable. These trees seem to be in solidarity with one another. But you might see something else entirely. Be sure to share it with us. Why not pen a tiny original poem or two in response to this glimpse of nature in the midst of an urban landscape?   Leave your best efforts in the comment box below and the tinywords editorial team will share the best of the best in tinywords 20.2, due out in late September 2020.

Thanks again for dropping by. We look forward to reading what you have to say.


In solidarity,

The Editors
