Deadline for submitting poetry is May 24, 2011.
A month prior to this date I'll be sending PM's to everyone who has made a submission in order to discuss any edits or revisions/replacements as well as confirmation of participation (just verifying that you still want to be published or not). If I do not receive a reply from you then I'll assume that the most recent stance you've made (within this thread) is your final stance and approach accordingly. Any "on the fence" stances will be seen as refusal to participate.
So Kitsune's thread got me thinking and I figured I'd bring this plan of mine to light. I actually have several writing projects up in the air right now and among them is a collaboration project among many poets. Plain and simple, we publish a book of poetry the title of which is
tentatively officially called A Little Box of Poetry The Little Book of Poetry.
If you're interested then please participate by adding your submissions to this thread (you may add as many as you like) and tell me whether or not you want to be credited by: your real name, your username (site included), your username (site excluded), an alias, or anonymously. Also, please inform as many people as you can about the project and get the word out!
There will be other people besides members of Arlong Park included in the works so this is a definitely a project capable of reaching fruition. Feel free to pitch ideas if you have any. Oh, and keep poetry PG (or PG-13 at most).
I'd like to take this time to make an announcement real quick. As you know, this book is being made with the intention of giving all profit to charity and I decided that, what with the recent crisis in Japan, we should send all of the proceeds of this to the Red Cross who is actively attempting to give them relief. The book will be available on e-books at the cost of about 3 dollars. So should you want to help the cause, please buy it when it becomes available.
**I'll provide a link in this thread when that time comes. In the meantime, if you can't purchase the book then please, please write more poetry. You can submit as many times as you want. Also, get the word out and tell as many people as you can about this project. Get poetry from other people and bring it here (don't plagiarize because that would only hurt us), start a thread like this on other sites, etc. Basically, whore out the cause and get us some poetry.
Even if you don't think you're good, submit anyway. We'll provide writing and editing help for you if you so desire. And if nothing else, then read the poetry here and offer input and comments. That would also be an important part to play. If you're good at art then make us some promotional banners or if you're not good at art, place our current promotional banner in your signature.
