Two NEW Happenings at TWO SYLVIAS PRESS!




Dear Friends, 

This last year has been filled with much change both personally and professionally. I moved from my home of 19 years and Two Sylvias Press found an incredible office space with a view of both Seattle and the ferry. We're thrilled!

Because of that, my blog has drifted into the area of "things I forget to do..." But in this next year, I hope to either move towards more writing here or on my space at Medium here: 


https://medium.com/@kelliagodon/latest
OR 
through my newsletter here: www.tinyletter.com/agodon





BUT I have been busy!  Mostly at Two Sylvias Press, which brings me to what I'd love to share with you, two things that you may be interested in:


The first is the Two Sylvias Press Wilder Series Book Prize for Women Over 50!


We currently have a call for submissions open for a full-length poetry book manuscript for women over 50. Deadline: November 30, 2016.

The Wilder Series Book Prize is open to women over 50 years of age (established or emerging poets) and includes a $1000 prize, publication by Two Sylvias Press, 20 copies of the winning book, and a vintage, art nouveau pendant. Women submitting manuscripts may be poets with one or more previously published chapbooks/books or poets without any prior chapbook/book publications. (We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified.)

All manuscripts will be considered for publication.

And the second is something new and fun for December-- An ONLINE Advent Calendar of Poetry Prompts (I kid you not!) created by Two Sylvias Press:



Each day, you click on the number to reveal a new poetry prompt! You can look back at prompts, but you can't open them all at once--just like an advent calendar!


Makes a great gift too!

Oh and here's a sample prompt:

So while I may have been away from this blog, I've still been productive in other parts of life. 

Hoping this finds you writing and settling into fall wonderfully!


xo,
Kells

Write New Poems this Summer with Two Sylvias Press! in--- in

Here's something I'm involved in



Spend the summer writing poems! 
Two Sylvias Press is offering a from-your-own-home/on-your-own-time 4-Week Online Poetry Retreat (July OR August sessions). Annette Spaulding-Convy & Kelli Russell Agodon & Kelli Russell Agodon will be sending out prompts, inspiration, creativity tips as well a free copy of The Daily Poet (or other book of poems) & a new journal to help inspire your summer.

At the end of the session, Annette & Kelli will respond to two of your poems and offer you ideas of where to submit your work.

Because of the personal response aspect, there's only a limited number of spaces available, so if you'd like to sign up, here's the link: http://twosylviaspress.com/online-poetry-retreat.html

Thanks for supporting indie presses!
