Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - Poetry Week 30
Hi and welcome to another week of celebrating and enjoying Poetry. I am Pete Marshall and I shall be your host this fine evening.
Before we start however I have a few announcements to make....
Over the last six months we have seen One Stop Poetry grow from strength to strength, and in doing so One Stop Poetry has outgrown this site and needed to create a new, more structured place. A place where you can continue to enjoy what we do. As we introduce more ideas and features to an already exciting place, we promise to keep alive the community spirit and love of poetry that brought us together. We are expanding to include elements that encourage young people to write and explore the arts. We strive to make creative writing explode off the pens of young people. We therefore are proud to announce the creation of www.onestoppoetry.com.
Obviously moving address is always a stressful time yet we hope that the transfer will be a seamless exercise and cause as little disruption to you as possible.
Thank you all also for your support and votes for One Stop Poetry in the Shorty Awards. If you haven't as yet voted or wish to encourage your followers to vote we are nominated for two awards in the categories Art & Poetry. The voting finishes this week so as much support as you can muster is more than welcome.
Now I feel its time to let One Shot Wednesday begin. If you are new or wish to have a recap here is how it works;
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,(use the URL from your blog) linking directly to your post, AFTER you've posted it. Mr Linky will be open from 5pm EST Tuesday (10pm UK) until 3am EST Thursday (8am UK). If you need help with this, please ask in the comment box.
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. though this is not mandatory we encourage you to visit at least one other poet and give some helpful feedback.
5. For some of you I need to stress - don't feel that you need to comment on each poem, take your time and enjoy the read.
On behalf of all the One Stop Team...Happy One Shot
