Dear Contributors, 

THIS IS OUR SECOND EDITION OF THIS BOOK. 


Our 1st book received tremendous response and can be purchased as a hard copy on www.poetschoice.in 

Please ensure you read the guideline VERY CAREFULLY before sending us your submissions. 

First and foremost, WE DO NOT WANT YOUR POEMS FOR THIS PROJECT. 

WE WANT POETS ONLY. NO TO - SHORT STORY OR ANY OTHER FORM OF WRITERS. 

What we DO want is, the truth in its raw form about 

- What led you to pick up that pen and start writing POEMS. EXCLUDES THOSE WHO STARTING WRITING IN GENERAL. IT MEANS THAT ONLY THOSE WHO FIRST PICKED THE PEN UP TO START WRITING POEMS MUST SEND. 

- The contributing circumstances in your life, in short your life story pruned in a way to showcase the linear progression of what gave birth to the poet in you, the growth of the poet in you and on. 

- Were there any blank zones or dead ends you met whilst voyaging the journey of a poet? Were there phases where you diverted off to walking another path absolutely giving up on poetry completely. 

- What were your achievements in terms of personal development or career, as a poet? 

- Was there a mentor who made you a poet or an inspiration you looked up to? 

- Any other aspect or detail which you'd like to pore out or share with the world.

Dear all, 

This initiative revolves around the thought where you have to first mentally believe that you have been approached by the local newspaper authorities to write and send them a poem which they will publish with your name. 

Now, after you established it that whatever you write is definitely going to be read by the readers whom the newspaper reaches to - 

YOU have to decide what your poem will be on and pen down a poem. 

You can send us your submissions as Docx file only. You can submit more than one poem. 

Selected poems will be published in a book titled - "Poems for the newspapers" 

Tanka Poems are a type of syllabic poems which have a structural premise. 

Normally, it is a five line poem which has 5-7-5-7-7 syllable count in the given chronology.

Kenning is a particularly descriptive form of poetry which describes a word and adds value to its existence and sense of being. Its charm is in blowing life into a word which no other form of poetry is as good as doing. 

For seeing examples of what a Kenning is - use google . Please make sure you are familiar with the rules of writing a Kenning in case you are trying your hand for the first time. This particular form can be really fun to write and read. 

We decided we'll publish a book on a collection of Kennings. We are not specifying any theme or genre for you, however if you have any difficulty in deciding then we'll prefer them to be on nature and life. 

We receive a large chunk of entries for our books. It is a time consuming and tedious task to scrutinize and decide the ones we will like to use thus the reading fee. However, if you wish to compel us to use your work, we have given you that option i.e. if you select the option of wanting a physical copy you can rest assured we will surely use your work. 


Pore us your work TODAY
