A Thousand Welcomes to Poetry On The Run…
Some of us Prosperians write verse. Some quite terse. Some time ago we were sitting about a table and discussing poetry in the Internet era. There are blogs and electronic spaces of poetry, but what about an app that offers to poets (both known and unknown) the chance to submit their poetry in a juried environment. When past the jury, you’re poem is published and promoted on an iPhone app. Best part, the poet retains the poem’s copyright.
We are not looking to make megabucks on this app. We’ll probably be lucky if we break even. Poetry is a pretty cool thing, we want to keep it going, even in our own small way. Yet, we’ll keep working on improving the app.
