tinywords will resume shortly

It’s been awhile, but tinywords will begin publishing a new issue before long.

Like previous issues, we’ll publish one poem per day, starting in September and running for several months.

I’m very pleased to say that Kathe L. Palka and Peter Newton have volunteered to take on the job of editing. I’ll continue hosting tinywords and providing technical support, as well as helping read submissions, but my role will be smaller than it has been. After more than 10 years, it’s time for me to leave tinywords in the hands of editors who have more time to dedicate to it. Kathe and Peter have been helping me for over a year, and Kathe was the lead editor for issue 11.3, so I am confident I’m leaving the site in the care of two capable and careful editors who share my aesthetic and my vision for the site.

We’ll be accepting submissions through August 31, 2012. To submit work for this issue, please use our submissions form.

The next issue is an open issue. Please send your best, preferably unpublished work.

We are looking forward to seeing your poems!

    Dear Dylan, Wonderful to see the tinywords email. I look forward to your new chapter. I still remember how much it meant to me to receive the emails and write comments during the early days, when I was caring for my mother. And I still remember the kind words from you and many others. They encourage me to this day. Thank you, Ellen
