One Shot Wednesday: A Place To Share Your Poems


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - where you get to highlight your poetic talents

Brian Miller here and I will be your host this week so let me cover some quick instructions;

1, Write an original poem and post it to your blog

2, Link back to One Shot Wednesday from your post

3, Sign up in the Mr Linky list, linking directly to your post, AFTER you've posted it. Mr Linky will be open from 5pm EST (Tuesday) until 3am EST (Thursday)

4, Go visit others that have posted. This is a great way to learn new forms, meet new poets and gain inspiration for your next piece.

Our hope is that this becomes a place that poets and word artists can create community, share their talents and hone each other's smilles. Look forward to visiting all of you!

heatblast92 said...

Hi, I'm new. Mr. Marshall's told me 'bout this place so I thought I might contribute something... I know I'm playing with the big leagues, the moment I read some of the poems posted here, but what the heck...

heartspell said...

Thank you for this offering... I have linked up my piece, but I goofed the first time ; then repeated with a second link-up... don't know if you can get rid of the oops link... sorry about that. Anyway... thanks a lot Heartspell

moondustwriter said...

5thsister said...

Thanks for the invite. I am linking up an old favorite of mine. I will try to have something fresh and new next week.

The Bug said...

I'm here by way of Brian & Suz. My offering is a bit of a cheat - I was publishing it last night anyway, but since it's a sort of poem I decided to link up.

Jessie said...

good morning Brian. i'm a follower and hopefully a weekly contributor. we'll see if hidden words lead me through my mist.

it is great meeting Moondustwriter and Peter--and of course actually seeing a real pic of you.

it's a great site you've developed here. i really hope it takes off and stays around.

smiles,

Kira Stann said...

Moondustwriter, Brian and Pete:

This idea has been quite a success I see. I enjoyed seeing everyone's work and appreciating the distinct styles of each writer.

I notice also that we all come from all over the world.

May be we can have a collaboration of some sort, like an anthology.

Just dreaming up a wild suggestion here

Lorenzo said...

Ruth said...

I'm in too, and with good timing I see, just after Lorenzo, who told me about this nice sharing project.

I hope I did this right...it links back to my blog, but not to a particular post, though the link is placed in "Man In The Box."

joanny said...

I am a little behind in posting this summer -- just visited Lorenzo's blog and thought next Wednesday will post.

Thanks to Brian Miller, Leslie Moon and Peter Marshall for hosting this... even though I did not post will try and visit others.

Have a good week end,
Joanny

Pravin Nair said...

Hi Brian Miller,

I have gatecrashed OSW...

I have linked back to my post as well...

Cheers!

betweenhearts75 said...

Okay I linked before to One Shot however, I believe mistakenly duplicated thinking a separate poem piece to post. I'd like to post to One Shot still however not sure how to do this. Linking anyway and maybe you could provide me some direction better to re-post another at other times =)) Sorry about this, please don't mind the newbie in this, lol! Thank you! =)
