Tweetspeak Poetry has come to Tumblr.
As you already know, Tumblr is a word place, an evocative art place, a thinking and daring and sometimes dreaming place. And definitely a bookish and poetic place.
Tweetspeak is the home of the famous (infamous?) Poetry Dare. It celebrates words with poetry prompts and articles on Poets & Poems and all kinds of posts on writing and the writing life. It is owned by the award-winning small press that has an Oprah-selected title to its name (T. S. Poetry Press). Tweetspeak exists to bring smart fun and beauty and the best in poetry and poetic things to the world.
So a better question might be. Why not come to Tumblr?
We couldn’t think of a single reason to live a Tumblr-free life (except that we might enjoy it too much and neglect the making of spaghetti sauce, jasmine tea, and the occasional naughty limerick—which even Sara Teasdale understood might be vital to the life of a poet).
Okay. So we’re here—
reblogging your beautiful art and photography, and writing our own six-word poems to go along with it. Sharing quotes that strike us, right to the heart. Giving you links to bookish things and, of course, the best in poetry and poetic things. If we like a poem you write, or anything at all that you write, we might ask you for permission to publish your work in our unique poetry daily Every Day Poems, or at our blog, or… you never know (it has happened) in one of our books.
Come, tumble with us. We can stir the sauce later.
