Dear Writing Friends,
This has been an exciting month for Whispers, with over 6500 and a new one day high of over 650 views. This is a tribute to the talented writers contributing their gift of words. We have eight new poets in February. Thank you to everyone that has promoted our online journal in any way. It's a joy for me to see everyone getting comments.
We had a wonderful response to this month's activity. Thank you, Brian Strand, for sharing your poetry form and for being this month's Activity Editor. I would like to invite anyone that has an idea for a future activity to contact me. Trying new things helps us grow as writers.
If you have not submitted yet or haven't shared a poem in awhile, I will be posting the Submission Guidelines later today. Thank you to those that share poetry on a regular basis. You are the backbone of our online journal/poetry community. Whispers feels like a family to me. It is a joy to work with so many talented people.
in intricate patterns--
each unique hue contributing
