I’m the series editor of an anthology of children’s artwork and poetry.
The artwork I’ve seen,
And the poetry I’ve read,
Is breath taking.
Each gem, a little brighter beside the other.
Today, I’m at World Moms Blog opening up submissions there, for two reasons.
The first, is that my daughter’s words laid beside poetry written by someone overseas warms my heart over – twice.
And the second, is that the story I’m telling there today, about pushing our children a titch, looking them in the eye and telling them that yes, you can and I believe in you, is so what this is all about.
Lifting each other up, and seeing how far we can go.
We know it’ll be stunning.
Please visit me at World Moms Blog and encourage the mamas there to inspire someone young that they love to submit.
And then? Find someone that you adore, and do the same.
Call for Submissions!
Who: Writers and artists, ages six-eighteen.
What: Original poetry and artwork inspired by the theme DREAM.
When: Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis. As soon as we have enough content for a complete anthology, submissions will close.
Every writer and artist will be responded to, and everyone whose work is accepted will receive a contributor copy, because PUBLISHED AUTHORS need to hold their books in their hands.
How: Submissions should be sent to me (the series editor!) at galit breen @ gmail . com
More How: Submissions should include-
- The full text of the poem or a jpg photo of the artwork
- An author photo
- A two-three sentence “About the Author” including age
- And a permission sentence such as, “I (name of parent) am the parent of (named child) and grant permission for (title of work), created by (named child), for the Dreams vox poetica anthology to be published by unbound CONTENT.”
