Winter is still in full swing here in the northern hemisphere but spring is on the way.  TINYWORDS 20.2 has now ended with Victor Ortiz’s haiku “last light.” The submission window for TINYWORDS 21.1 opened on February 1st, so if you haven’t yet, send us your small poems, haiga, or brief haibun to be considered for our next issue: TINYWORDS 21.1.

Sending work to TINYWORDS is a simple two-step process. Just check out our Guidelines and click on the Submissions Page from Feb. 1 through Feb. 28th, 2021. One month window, as usual.

To keep things lively while we work on the new issue, we present a new writing prompt. This image from UK photographer Matt Emmett, taken in Southern Belgium in 2015 is called “Ruined Chateau.” You can check out more of his work in his recent book called Forgotten Heritage; Rediscovering Forgotten Places and on his website here. In the meantime, we hope this vision of grandeur even in decay sparks a poem or two. Maybe one of hope for the future.

Be sure to share it with us. Leave your best efforts in the comment box below (click here if you don’t see the comments below) and the TINYWORDS editorial team will share the best of the best in TINYWORDS 21.1, due out in late March, 2021.

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