I stumbled upon this poetry site where members review each other's work. Its called Mosiac Musings.

The poem I read had a discussion following it about punctuation and spacing in poetry. This is subject I often thought of when I was writing my own poems. I would use various methods (including italicizing, punctuation, lines breaks,etc) to try and get the reader to hear the poem in their head they way I intended it.

What do you do? How does you typography affect your poetry? Is it even a consideration for you?

Mittia Poetry Contest

The details, as explained by the judges of this poetry contest,:

Poems: Short poems only (under 100 words). This competition is FREE! Open to anyone, anywhere. We pick the poems that move to the judging round and post them on our "Fina-List" board. That's right, you're auditioning every time you enter. Enter as often as you like, but once you've made the "Fina-List" you can only appear once … one poem in the finals per poet is the rule. Of course you retain all the rights to your work. The rules are few and simple, but will be adhered to: No foul language—good poetry doesn't need it. Keep it under 200 words; we don't want a novel. More thatn 200 words will be deleted. Enter no more than 2 poems per day, or you will be deleted from the board. FINA-LISTS ONLY—must submit, with each entry, your full name, your e-mail address, and name of poem only to: Poetry Webmaster. We do not accept anonymous entries. Your submission means you acknowledge the work submitted is your own, and, you understand that you have given us the right to publish your poem on our web site. SPELLING/GRAMMATICAL ERRORS, except when clearly taken in artistic license, will result in immediate disqualification. We expect all entrants to at least use "Spell Check" if not the dictionary. (US/Canadian/British English). Published poets, previous entrants, honourable mentions and winners are free to re-enter this competition. You may re-enter poems from the previous competition. All decisions are final by the judges.

PWB Business Post- June 2009

I've been consumed with a fiction project so I haven't had time to update this site. I'm really behind on reading e-mails for PWB too. I'm sorry if I haven't returned your correspondence. I do want this site to come back from its haitus though.

Thank you for your continued interest.
