unFold Salutes NaNoWriMo

As you may or may not have noticed, many of November’s unFold poems have featured some aspect of the writing life.  This correlates nicely with NaNoWriMo, so we are now officially calling it the November theme.  If you hadn’t noticed or you just want to procrastinate before writing your daily quota, check out unFold‘s NaNoWriMo collection.

unFold‘s editor, Rose Auslander, enjoyed having a common thread amongst the poems so much, that she has devised some themes for upcoming months as well.  While poems do not have to fit within a theme to be published in a given month, we hope the themes will serve as inspiration to poets plagued with a blank page.

Upcoming themes:

  1. February 2010:  Zoology (Wanted: Mammals, amphibians, fish, insects, and reptiles — alive or dead.)
  2. March 2010:  Automobile (Cars breaking/making weird noises/being fixed/being unfixable–onomatopoeia welcome.)
  3. April 2010:  Technology (Poetry that uncovers the art of technology.)

Submissions are wide open for the months listed above, so check out our submission guidelines and get writing;-)

Cheers,

J.S.
