E book Addition: A Duet, Write and Get Published with me

Image

In light of my post  The 1 thing that Writers and Bloggers need to know before they begin I decided that I would like to write a few duets, well, 3 to be exact.

I am looking for fellow writers and poets to do a duet with me that I will post on my blog  and then add to my free ebook that I will be publishing in the upcoming months along with all of the past ‘Storetries’

The concept is a back and forth piece written together. One will be with a writer going back and forth between their paragraph prose and my poetic verse.  Two will be a purely poetic duet. Continue reading

‘Storetry’ #5 Part Story/Part Poetry. Collaboration/Challenge for poets and writers, join us and get published!!

I would like to thank everyone for their submissions and great pieces of writing both prose and poem and the wonderful photographs submitted!

I ask people to submit  a paragraph or a poem verse to fit into an opening paragraph and closing poetry verse that I supply.  I ask for people to contribute the ‘stuffing’ of the story, the middle with a short paragraph OR a poetry verse.  I then take all of the submission both prose and poem and try to add it all into the middle to make up at Storetry (part story part poetry) that flows nicely into a ‘Storetry’ (part story ‘stor’ and part poetry ‘etry’) I use all submission that are supplied to me as long as they pertain to the weeks opening and closing.  I will be publishing a free eBook that will include all of the ‘Storetry’s’ along with everyone’s submissions and blog addresses.  So by participating you will become ‘published’!  You can find next weeks ‘Storetry’ info posted on my home page in the Stuff It Collaboration for Everyone Tab by tomorrow morning.

To help with reading, I have included each persons blog address below their submission, you can click on the link to check out more of their work if it interests you.

The Carnival

The place was crowded with people.  The smell of hot buttery popcorn enticed my nose.  The sounds of people and couples laughing and enjoying the hot summer evening danced on the air.  Flashing lights and rides whipping by the night skyline flashed before my eyes.  It was the night of the Summer Solstice Carnival, my favorite night of the year.

Stuff It Tuesday. Storetry #4 A collaboration challenge for writers and poets!

This is the fourth installment of ‘Stuff it Tuesdays!’  Time sure does fly doesn’t it!

This week came together nicely despite the fewer number of entries.  I was left wanting to read the next Chapter!

Thank you so much to everyone that has participated so far.  I’ve really loved how all of these Storetries have turned out!

Please watch for next weeks opening paragraph and closing poem it will be listed at the end of this ‘Storetry’ and in the tab entitled Stuff It on my main page.

Now there is more incentive to participate!  I have been putting some thought into these wonderful collaborations and I think with the permission of all of those that have participated in this one and the past 3 that I may publish a free e Book, no one (myself included) would make a profit from it but that contains all of these fantastic ‘Storetries’, complete with every person that has submit to a ‘storetry’s name and blog address in the same fashion they are laid out here.  These are far to good not to share and you will be ‘published’ and the ‘world’ can read your writing/poetry!!  If you do not want to be included in the book I will remove your entry.  I will email everyone that has participated about it when time draws nearer to publishing. Continue reading

Week #4 info Weekly Stuff it ‘Storetry’ Challenge, for poets and writers! Come and Join Us!

So I have come up with a weekly collaboration idea!  I challenge you as writers and poets to “stuff” my opening and closing paragraphs with a written paragraph of no more than 5 sentences or a poetry verse of 6 lines that would fit as the “stuffing” of the story.

Take your time and think about it so you have a lead in and a lead out of your paragraph or verse so that I can link it all together.  I will also link each contribution to your blog so we can all showcase what we have to offer and take a peek at the submissions we love.

Keep it true to your style and flare but remember nothing over a PG rating please.  

I will also add 4 photographs into the ‘storetry’.   Please submit poems, writings and photos to writingsofamrs@outlook.com with Stuff it Poem, Stuff it paragraph or Stuff it Photo in the subject line.

Submissions must be received by 4:00pm eastern time by the Monday before the Stuff it Tuesday.  

All submissions will be used.  Look below for this weeks Stuff it.

Time for this weeks Stuff it Tuesday Collaboration.  This one is a little more challenging!

Opening:

He awoke to the dripping sounds of the rain.  He slowly stirred and turned over to lay on his stomach and peered out the raggedy opening of the window in his hut.  It had been two weeks now that he had been staying in this filthy, wet hut.  As he stared off into the rainy sky in wonderment of the journey that had led him here.

 

 

Closing :

The mud squishing between his toes

The villagers and grass huts lined in rows

He looked back

A foreigner in a foreign land

His destruction led by his own people’s hand.

Welcome, the poem, soon to be ‘spoken word’

I created this poem to perform as spoken word for my first Pay Day collaboration turning my Gravy Baby poem to song Introducing Ray the Musical Poet.  It was to be my intro but I’m not nearly ready to attempt spoken word yet, it’s quite the challenge.  If you don’t know much about spoken word I encourage you take a look.

I want to share the poem with you.  I’m excited to get it ready to perform.  This poem puts into word my passion for collaboration of the arts, to create something new.
