This was my best example of prose poetry... It's a tricky thing, because I won the "Night & Day Poetic Prose Contest with it, but I also won a Quill for best flash fiction. *Laugh* Which is it? Suppose it doesn't matter, as long as people enjoy it. But I do still struggle to define writing as a 'prose poem' instead of just as descriptive prose. I enjoy writing them though, labels aside. I've written a few more, but this remains my best effort.

Top 25 Publishers for New Authors


"The writing market can seem overwhelming, especially for new authors who do not have a history of past publication. It is important to note that many legitimate established presses don't specifically look for unpublished authors. The BOOK presses on this list were chosen because they have published a number of debut books. Also, the publishers on this list do not require literary agents. You can submit to these publishers directly."

Nice to know if this pen
stops pounding out morse
codes instead of words,
it hasn't learned to sail
yet. Smile

On Monday, President Trump released his FY2019 Budget Proposal, which once again calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and many other important agencies and initiatives.

While FY2018 funding is being finalized, and FY2019 funding is being introduced, we hope those of us who love and participate in the arts across the US will decide to ask Congress to #SaveTheNEA. IF this cause is important to you, here is something you can do TODAY to fight to save these important programs.

Call the members of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior and thank them for their previous support of the arts and humanities, specifically:

Lisa Murkowski, Chair (R-AK) – (202) 224-6665
Thad Cochran (R-MS) – (202) 224 -5054
Lamar Alexander (R-TN) – (202) 224-4944
Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) – (202) 224-6472
Tom Udall, Ranking Member (D-NM) – (202) 224-6621

*Star*This isn't a call for donations, it is a chance to reach out to Congress to maintain support for the arts in the US if you love the cause. *Heart*

Damn straight! When will they learn if it's not broke, don't fix it.
...or consider making your own contributions to things that are important to you.

Thanks, Maria !
You made a good point. *Thumbsup*
This NEA post is a head's-up, a chance to
consider where we stand and what we
want to tell our legislators regarding
whether or not to provide continuing support
for public radio, tv, museums, along with
grants and fellowships for fine artists
and writers.
