unFold 2012 Garden Show–a poetry contest

Calling all poets with spring fever! Folded Word is hosting a virtual garden show on the unFold blog and Twitter stream in May. This will be a juried show, judged in two stages:

Stage 1 = acceptance into the show
Stage 2 = selection of one Best of Show winner and three Honorable Mentions.

Moving Up in the World

When I first joined Folded Word in the spring of 2009 as Managing Editor, I never dreamed that a mere two years later I would have overseen the production of multiple books and chapbooks, earned a Literary Publishing Certificate, and participated in a live radio interview. But I have. Which is amazing. But it also means that some back-office changes are due.

24/7

Folded Word invites and encourages everyone to join us for a month of writing. This August, Folded Word will be holding our first writing month event called 24/7. For the first 24 days of August, everyone will dedicate time each day to write either a piece of twitter fiction (<140 characters), prose poetry (<100 words), short poetry (<9 lines), micro fiction (<250 words), or flash fiction (<500 words). The last 7 days of August will be dedicated to revising these works.

Writing Prompt Part Deux

So you tried out show me your lits, and you enjoyed it. It helped you break that writers block and your writing flourished. But, for some reason, you aren’t completely satisfied. Maybe this type of writing prompt isn’t for you.
Oneword.com is a writing exercise website that presents the writer with one word to write about. You do not define the word, and if you don’t know the word, don’t worry.

Pic of the Week 11 Prompt

These prompts are usually posted Mondays on our Twitter and Facebook accounts plus our editorial blog. This time, however, we have posted it on Tuesday because we will be running this same prompt for two weeks due to a special story we already have scheduled for this weekend. Since we have two weeks to select the story from this prompt, we will be giving editorial feedback to any stories submitted prior to 30 May 2010. If you receive feedback, you may choose to revise your story and resubmit prior to our final decision on 4 June 2010.
