All of these prayers mean so much to me. I thank you all for making room for me in your heart. I have never depended on my WdC family so much, but during these last few months, I have learned this family is bigger and more gracious than I could ever imagine. Love you all! *Heart*

EDITORIAL FOCUS

Prefer poems with these qualities: image, subtlety, and point of view; a surface of worldly exactitude, as well as a depth of semantic ambiguity; and a voice that negotiates with its body of predecessors.

TIPS FROM THE EDITOR

We like to think that writers have read several entries in the 2River Chapbook Series and that they are familiar with the history of poetry and poetic theory.

LITERARY THEATER

https://www.pw.org/theater?tag=documentary

"'This poem is not a cry for help. This poem is not my broken pieces. And we are not done yet." In this HBO documentary, We Are Not Done Yet, a group of veterans and active-duty service members come together to write a collaborative poem and turn it into a stage performance.
Thank you for sharing that! I definitely want to see that! *Heart*

Snowy Thanksgiving in Central Park, NYC

Gathering together in grateful appreciation for a Thanksgiving celebration with friends and family is a deeply meaningful and comforting annual ritual for most Americans. Connecting with loved ones to express our gratitude is at the heart of all this feasting, prayerful thanks, recreation, and nostalgia for a simpler time. Somewhere in the bustling activity of November's Thanksgiving is the enduring memory of a day in Plymouth, nearly 400 years ago, when two distinct cultures, on the brink of profound and irrevocable change, shared an autumn feast.

Each year, we relish this opportunity to recognize our blessings here on W,Com. The Rising Stars team joins me in celebrating your bright, sunny presence. We give thanks for your warmth, abiding friendship, creative spirit, moxie, growth, and many remarkable accomplishments.

Happy Thanksgiving ~
