In summer last year, we ran into M:/P MAG on twitter and they contacted us for a discussion about Poetry in a Modern Society – the article can be read over HERE.
They also featured a poem of Brian’s and one of mine and soon the idea of a Poetry Collaboration was born.
So our Meeting the Bar challenge this week is a bit different.
We have no Mr. Linky, but an apportunity to submit your poem and possibly have it featured in the February issue of M:/P MAG.
The poetry theme for their upcoming issue is “Page Turn” and they will feature five of our poems.
M:/P MAG, a bilingual concept magazine since 2008, has become an online portal for international creatives to express themselves through thought provoking articles, submersive photography & creative events in Paris, the UK & Tokyo.
They believe in personal expression, the process behind the Fashion Industry, rather than its face value, as well as supporting & developing emerging talent.
The ethos of the magazine is art based as well as fashion related with a hint of philosophical creativity – and this is also the kind of poems they’re looking for.
Here’s how it works:
- Write a poem, based on the theme “Page Turn”
- Copy it into the email body (no word- or pdf attachements please) and send it to dVersePoets@gmail.com until the 12th of January. Don’t forget to add your name and blog url.
- Please keep in mind…once it’s sent, we can’t accept re-writes
- You can only submit one poem per person, not per blog
We will forward all poems anonymously to MJDuggan, the poetry editor of M:/P MAG and he will choose the five winners.
The chosen poems will be featured on February 3rd in the M:/P online MAG
From Jean-Paul Sartre to Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, M:/P MAG looks to you for inspiration – and we know, we have an awesome bunch of poets in the pub and really looking forward to what you’ll coming up with.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask them in the comments…have fun with the challenge and…happy writing!!
