Greetings, fellow Aphraites!
We have all very much enjoyed running our 'Beat the Monday Blues' poetry series here at Cafe Aphra - in particular our Poetry Editor, Yvonne, who has done a sterling job reading submissions and frequently offering helpful feedback on entries.
However, after careful consideration we've decided to change the format this year. While we are still committed to publishing poetry on Cafe Aphra, we'd like to do so less often and thus be able to take more time over the selection process. We've therefore decided to transform our series from a weekly Monday Poem, to a "Poem of the Month".
Poems will be published on the first Monday of each month. We continue to welcome submissions from poets both published and unpublished and the same guidelines apply as before. Send us your submissions with an accompanying image to: email@example.com
Our first "Poem of the Month", for February, is 'Stone' by Séamus Duggan - a homage to the great Irish poet, Séamus Heaney.
We look forward to reading your work!
Happy writing in 2014.
The Cafe Aphra Baristas
