dear poets and storytellers. I hope you are well, enjoying winter (if you share the Northern Hemisphere with me) or delighting
in summer (if you dwell in the Southern and—at the
moment—much warmer bit). Today, before we open our 56th Writers’ Pantry,
Rosemary, Rommy, and I wish to share a couple of
obvious but helpful reminders:
really enjoy sharing this space with you: I know you already know this,
but I’ve always believed that good things are worth repeating. And during these
days of isolation, in particular, having a group of souls to share words with is
a great gift.
try to adhere to prompt guidelines: Most of us are great at remembering
the small things (i.e., one link per participant, 369
words or fewer for prose, and so on…). But some of us often forget helpful
parts of the guidelines (i.e., adding the direct link to the
post we are contributing, and not just the link to our blog). This is not a
huge deal, but it does make it harder for anyone who might not be able to visit
you right away to find your post.
The latter is very easy to do. Just click on the title of your post (or the date, in the case of certain platforms), and that will take you to the direct link we wish you add. Like this (click images to enlarge them):
I know all this sounds a bit silly, since we all know it. But good
our Pantry is open. We welcome pieces new and old, fiction and nonfiction short and long—if you choose to share prose,
please let the count be 369 words or fewer. One link per participant. Please, take
a moment (or three) to visit other
poets and storytellers and comment on their work (read and discussed words grow yummier).
more thing, remember that we’re always open to suggestions that might help us
improve Poets and Storytellers United. If you have one, please email Rosemary at (rosemary dot lifemagic at gmail dot com) or me at (magalyguerrero at live dot com). ❤️🖤❤️
Let’s rejoice in the magic of words!
