Hello and welcome to the newest issue of t i n y w o r d s, which we are happy to present to you with the help of a wide range of poets hailing from Canada to Sweden, India to Australia, and just about everywhere in America. Our great thanks also to assistant editors: Ruth Holzer, John Emil Vincent and Dave Serjeant. And, of course, to tinywords founder and micropoetry pioneer, Dylan Tweney. Most importantly, thanks to all of you who read, respond and submit to t i n y w o r d s. We couldn’t do it without you, so, thanks again.
Congratulations to this issue’s writing prompt winner, John McManus, for his poem written in response to the photographer Bryan Schorn’s autumn image of the iconic Gapstow Bridge in New York’s Central Park. The decision wasn’t easy and with over a hundred poems submitted in response to our prompt, the inspired poems make up an issue in themselves. We recommend that you look back and scroll through to enjoy them at your leisure.
But for now, let’s begin our stroll through the park and into the winter to come. Let’s see what we can see.
