poetry and prose request (and opportunity!)

Some of you may know I’m co-editor of the Poetry and Prose round-up for BritMums. This means that every other month I read as much poetry and prose written by my lovely fellow bloggers as I can, and put it together in a post on the BritMums site. You can find my last post (published early this month) here – it’s well worth a read as I was snowed-under with fabulous work to share!

My co-editor Victoria, was due to do the next roundup (which will be published in early March) but we’ve agreed that I’ll do it instead, as she’s got lots on this month, so I find myself with an extra roundup post to write. Since it’s unexpected, I thought I’d try something a bit different this time, and I was hoping for your help!

heartsAs it was Valentine’s Day last weekend I’ve already noticed a fair few creative pieces on the subject of love… and I thought, why not make my next roundup a ‘bumper, love edition’? And I’d LOVE it if you could point me in the direction of anything you’ve written on the subject. But NOT just romantic love, oh no, no, no – all sorts of love! I want the post to be a celebration of everything and everyone we care about – children, partners, parents, siblings, friends, family, cats, dogs, hobbies, gin, pizza, small pebbles… whatever – the world is your oyster! (In fact, there are extra bonus points for anyone who writes a love poem about oysters ;))

So, lovely people, if you’ve written (or posted) a poetry or prose piece on this theme during the month of February then please share it with me by Friday 26th February. Just tweet me @writingbubble or give me a nudge on my FB page. I will include as many pieces as I can in the roundup (hopefully all, space allowing). Of course, I will also be on the look out for posts too.

Please share this post with anyone you think might be interested. I’m looking forward to reading and sharing your work!

    This is a good idea! If I was any good at poetry & prose & had posted anything like this, I’d submit it to you…but, sadly, I’m not & I haven’t! Hope you get lots of lovely submissions, though! #PoCoLo

    Ah I haven’t done anything creative on my blog for aaaaages! When I saw this the other day I got thinking about all the things I *could* write… And then remembered I’m struggling to find time to fit in the novel so should probably just focus on that for the time being. I hope you find lots of great pieces to share! I’ll look forward to reading :) xx
