post(card) some peace
January 23, 2016
World Peace Poets invites you to participate in Peace Poetry Postcard Month, starting February 1. (It’s also National Haiku Writing Month. Peace haiku, anyone?) Here is the information as posted on the World Peace Poets Facebook page:
Leap Into Peace in 2016
SIGN UP for February Peace Poetry Postcard Month.
2016 has an extra day for Peace!
JOIN poets from around the world (29 to a group) and send one of your original peace poems on a postcard for the 29 days of February.
SIGN UP at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will become part of a group of 29 who promise to send new poems on peace to each other.
To SIGN UP use the subject line: Peace Postcards
In the body of the e-mail provide:
Your Name, Street Address, City, State, Country and Zip or Postal Code.
For every 29 poets who sign up, a group is formed.
You will receive an e-mail with your list as soon as your group reaches 29 names and addresses.
On the first day of February (or before) write an original poem on the post card of your choice and send it to the person whose name is listed below your name. Proceed down the list sending a new post card every day. Circle back to the top of the list until you come back to your own name. It’s that easy!
POSTAGE: From the U.S., International postage is $1.20 per card or four first class Forever stamps. (Within the U.S., postcard rate is $0.35.)
PROMPTS! Original poems of peace can be inspired by a postcard you have received or by a prompt listed at World Peace Poets.
POST! Feel welcome to post your peace poem on the World Peace Poets Facebook page if you wish and give peace a jump start (leap ahead) in 2016!
