Eighth Day does a good bit of traveling the country, setting up mini-bookstores at conferences such as The Glen Workshop, CiRCE, and Calvin College’s Festival of Faith and Writing. We meet all sorts of wonderful people and inevitably, happily, establish important connections between their online endeavors and our own. We met L.L. Barkat, managing editor of The High Calling and the editor of T.S. Poetry Press and Tweetspeak, at one such event and are pleased to help promote T.S. Poetry’s Every Day Poems.
Started as a collaborative writing experiment between friends and fellow poets, T.S. Poetry gathers writers, forming an online community and hosting Twitter writing parties toward the cooperative creation of new work. In that same vein, they own and have a hand in running the award-winning T.S. Poetry Press. They also publish Every Day Poems.
Subscription is easy (and cheap). You receive a poem a day in your inbox five days a week. You also get updates on writing projects, announcements about Twitter writing parties, resources for poetry teachers and writer’s groups, and maybe most importantly, “a way to read and write together with a growing community of committed yet fun-loving poets.”
Click on the poem titles below for a few delivery samples, and check out the Tweetspeak blog. It includes poetry reviews, short essays on the craft, and published collaborative poems.
