The Summer 2018 Showcase is published

One week behind schedule, but it’s here!

This time, as well as new names providing the words, we have the wonderful photography of Elan Mudrow. Can you see a face in the picture below?

The words are amazing, diverse, surprising. In order to find out more either hover your cursor over the ‘Experience’ tab and scroll down to the bottom, or alternatively click here.

Late again…

Karl Valentin 1021… but have no fear, I intend to turn this lateness into an opportunity.karl-valentin-1022 I’m delaying the publication of the Summer 2018 Showcase here at the zen space for a week, while I sort out some issues (I won’t bore you with them).

This means that you have an extra week in which to contribute! I am especially looking for new ‘names’ – people who have not had anything published here before. So if you are new to our Showcases please contribute (as per the instructions under the ‘Submission’ tab). And if you happen to know of anyone else who may be new to us, please pass this invitation on to them.

What I am looking for is haiku of course, but not just haiku. I like to feature any short, in-the-moment poems and poem-like words. Let me see what you’ve got.

the zen space has now been published since 2011, which is actually a lot longer than I had expected. I would like to say thank you to the many people who contribute, and also to those who read the Showcases. I hope you will all continue to support this little venture – and don’t forget to pass the word along.

Once again, in case you missed it above, I’m delaying publication of the Summer 2018 Showcase, and extending the deadline for submissions. You have an extra week!

Well, actually…

200 BunnymanI did manage to get the Winter 2018 Showcase published today! Callooh! Callay! So come and join the Bunnyman and his friends over there, and celebrate Hogmanay.

Actually, I don’t think we mention Hogmanay at all, but there’s a goodly amount of other stuff for your delight. So either hover your pointer over the ‘Experience’ tab and scroll down until a link for the Winter 2018 Showcase appears, then click on it. Alternatively, please feel free to click here.

By the way, I check out how the site looks using Google Chrome. If it looks at all odd in your browser, please let me know. I’m not sure there’ll be much I can do about it, but it would be useful to know. Thanks.

Late again!

A Guid New Year tae ane an’ a’!

I’m told I shouldn’t use the ‘apologetic apostrophe’ when writing in Scots, but as a preface to an apology it actually seems appropriate. The Winter 2018 Showcase isn’t ready to go and will, in consequence, be a few days late. I have various twiddles and diddles to do to the site, as well as preparation to the draft Showcase. I know you’ll bear with me.

The Autumn 2017 Showcase is now published!

1Hello, dear readers and writers! We have a new Showcase for you today. It is the 25th, and, as you will read in my editorial comments, I’ve been wondering whether the number of pages I can create here is finite. So, when you have read the latest Showcase (which you can by hovering your cursor over the ‘Experience’ tab and scrolling down, or alternatively you can click here) why not go back to the very beginning and wander through the archive of Showcases, clicking ‘like’ as you go, to record your visit.

Something else you can do for me – invite a friend to come and read the new Showcase, feel free to pass the link around.

New readers! Can you write a piece of short poetry that is in-the-moment – a haiku, perhaps – or expresses something very simple in a few words? If so, I would love to hear from you. Click the ‘Submission’ link, find my email address, and get in touch.

Please note that I can’t accept submissions that are made as comments, either here on the Home page or in the comment section of a Showcase. I regret I have to delete them.

I don’t mind actual comments in poetry, though. 🙂
