all of my poetry is really personal
think of things that don’t go together. sweet cacti. rubber teeth. bumblebee igloos.
they all sound kinda stupid on their own but i think if you want it to work in a piece, it’ll work in a piece. don’t do it to be gimmicky because people will be able to tell. think of things that can describe something but don’t go together. be true to yourself and to the piece and whatever happens, happens. :]
The guidelines say please submit 2-7 poems so please submit 2-7 poems.
I once saw a boy jump out a window and become a bird. “Oh god”, he screams to muffle the deafening vulnerability

Are you a writer? Are you an artist? Do you want to be published in a rad literary journal? Submit to WTR!!
i don’t think any of my stuff is finished. i can always go back and edit and edit and edit and make my stuff better ya feelz.
i know that i’m ready to post on tumblr mostly when i’m tired of reworking a piece and i think it’s as good as it’s gonna get at that particular time. :]
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
i’m basically the only person who sees your biography! the people who are actually judging your work don’t know your name, your biography, your age, your anything. they only see the piece.
wtr’s mission is to publish writers and artists who have incredible work but maybe not so many credentials alongside established artists and writers. we don’t care about who you are, where you’re from or what you do. if you’ve got inventive, igniting work, we want it. :]
