Poetry among the stained glass windows – a virtual opportunity to participate

I haven’t written any poetry for years! I love to read other people’s  original works and may be tempted to write some of my own.

Today’s blog presents a unique opportunity to take part in a writing exercise. There is special provision made for VIRTUAL participation. This is thanks to my neighbour, friend and fellow WordPress blogger, Ted.

Your poem may be selected for inclusion in an anthology, the copyright of the poem remains with you, and you are free to re-print or publish your poem elsewhere at any time.

I have included a link

http://stainedglasspoetry.wordpress.com/ that will tell you all you need to know to take part. I have also copied the information about Virtual participation to hopefully encourage you to look further at the WordPress site established for the Writing Morning.

If you would like some historical information about this beautiful old church then go to: Some historical information is HERE

From Ted’s blog:

‘Virtual’ participation

If you are unable to come to Busselton to take part in our writers’ morning, then participate online.

Click on ‘HOME” and explore the windows by scrolling down and down. On the ‘HOME’ page, you will find the windows and a brief description of each.

Or, click on ‘WINDOWS – IN THE CHURCH’ or ‘WINDOWS – IN THE PORCH’ where I have uploaded a thumbnail of each window.

The images are high-resolution, so you can look at each window in detail by clicking on the thumbnail or smaller image.

Then write any poetry inspired by the windows – or by the church itself.

It helps if you can fill in the ‘Submissions Form‘ electronically and send it with your poems. Otherwise download the Submission Form and entrust your poems to the postal services.

Or click here ….Submission sheet

I hope you will take part. I think I will make a virtual contribution as well.



PS If you have any queries you can leave a comment for me and I can pass them onto Ted for you 🙂
