One Shot Wednesday - Week 25


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - Week 25

Hi and welcome to this weeks One Shot Wednesday. I am Pete Marshall & today I will be your merry host.

Following the recent announcement of our "The Best of One Shot Wednesday - The First 6 Months" anthology, published under Limited Editions Press, today's One Shot is the cut off week, number 25,  for poetry to be considered. For further details please visit the following link;

Rest assured however this is not the last One Shot Wednesday, just the last for your poetry to be considered in our first Anthology. I hope you also note the word "first" as we will be releasing further publications throughout the coming year.

The first 6 months of One Stop Poetry really has been a wonderful success which has seen us grow at an amazing pace whilst still keeping true to our original beliefs. As we have grown so has the team, who work diligently, week in week out, to bring you such wonderful features.  We have so many great plans & announcements  in store for 2011 and look forward to enjoying every day of the next 6 months with all of you, who help make this such an exciting place to be.

In just 6 months One Stop Poetry has seen itself firmly established as a place that brings together the arts from all around the globe, and lends itself to quality and as a platform to helping you realise your dreams.

On behalf of all the team at One Stop Poetry I would therefore like to thank you for your support over the last 6 months & to wish you the happiest of Christmas's and a wonderful & prosperous New Year.

Cheers Pete

One Shot Wednesday - week 25

For those of you who are new here's how it works

1) post a poem to your blog
2) link your poem to One Shot using Mr Linky, where you will be prompted to enter your name and the URL for your poem. The URL is the web address for your poem
3)Visit other One Shot Poets, as many as you wish. Tell them how you feel when you are reading, encourage and interact with them. If you wish to critique remember to be positive and constructive, negative criticism does not help anyone.
4) Tell others about One Shot Wednesday by including a link to this page on your post

Welcome everyone. Sit back we have coffee tea and snacks in the corner there.

Each of you make this place a poet's corner to relax, meet people and get feedback.
next year we hope for more. Read Jessica Kristie's Blog tomorrow she got the insider scoop about our plans for 2011

Love and gratitude to each of you.
Happy Holidays

P.S. We will have poetry to remember loved ones Thursday if you want to link in. Then a Christmas Eve story (good for the whole family) on Friday

It's longer than usual, I'm often short, you know. So please, don't forget to scroll down the page - you'll find the English version right below the Portuguese one.

One of these days I'm going to post a cheerful poem for OSW;

Thanks to all the fine writers and poets who makes this site what it is, and to the team that keeps the motor running.

Happy Holidays.

Hello everyone. This is my first time posting a poem here. I recognize some of you from reading your work in the past. Lot's of talent here. It's a pleasure joining the fun.

Don Carlo said...

I see Claudia is first--however, this is first time for DON CARLO posting (pasting?)...seeing what it's like.

Seems like a familiar place, but it sure was not easy to find week # 25 Took longer to get here than to write the piece!!

Thank you for this opportunity to be among real writers.

rToady said...

Thanks for having me back. I promise not to drink so little this time.

Gwen Dubeau said...

Hello everyone!

What a busy week so far..
I have sent some holiday cheer in the form of a poem and picture.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!

Best wishes.

Fireblossom said...

My little bit of melodrama is up. :-)

marousia said...

Thank you again - this week my poem has been inspired by the Solstice

kkrige said...

well, going out with a fizzle. As Repressed Soul noted with the kids home, life is not in routine. That includes brain flow. I don't think I can count this collection of poems today as my best of the first six months (as I think I have only missed one week since the start), but I did pull forth a tidbit for you to peruse.

katrin said...

And i am number 99 :) thanks for hosting!

APalmerPoetry said...

It's been a while, haven't been so inspired lately. Probably exhausted from all this festivity. But I have penned one this morning at work called 'Perpendicular Parallels' for this great weekly tradition. I LOVE reading all the other One Shots. Thank you to all those that have read and continue to read mine. Oh, and Happy Xmas (if you recognise it). Arron

Alegria Imperial said...

Thanks again to all! Wednesdays, the best day of the week, isn't it?

Walker Percy once wrote that Wednesday afternoon was a bummer.
I disagree since frequenting this Poetry bazaar...Bazaar poetry? No.
Anyway my post is for my birthday girl...my wife...the best poem ever I wed. Merry Christmas and God bless us everyone.

Poetry Passion Pastry said...

A Simple Country Girl said...

Howdy. This is my first time here. I recognize some folks and have wondered about their Wednesday links, so I finally clicked the link.

I reckon I will keep searching for the widget/gadget/badge thingamajig for my post. Technology is not my strong suit. Come to think of it, I don't even own a suit.

Blessings.
