Last week, the folks at the online literary journal, Young Adult Review Network (YARN), published three poems to promote their “Fall Treats Poem Drive and Contest.” All three poems had been submitted by individuals from different parts of the country who did not know each other, did not know what the others were writing about, nor even when the poems might be published, if at all.
Coincidental, then, that they all had apples as their subjects!
YARN, apparently, knows a good idea when it hits them on the head (Get it? Like Sir Isaac Newton? The apple fell, and hit them on the – ok, you get it), so they decided to use apples as their October theme. I’m pleased that they were inspired by one of my poems not only for publication, but for helping them formulate their contest, which just began this past Monday. You can view all three poems here…then write one of your own and send it in!
And be sure to see what else is happening today for Poetry Friday with Irene at Live Your Poem!
