Upcoming guests

Happy Monday!

To date this month we’ve enjoyed the work of eight adult poets: Steven Withrow, Amy, Genia, Gay Fawcett, Ken Thomas Slesarik, Mary Nida Smith, Beth Carter, and Reta Stewart Allen. Among the young poets, Taylor McGowan is our only poet to post a poem so far. There is still plenty of time for many more poets to show off their stone-inspired poems. Today is the 10th and we don’t cut off submissions until the night of May 23.

I’ve been looking back at the talented guests who have appeared on my Friday spots. It is a pleasure to bring so many strong voices here and I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am. Here is a list of their names and the dates they appeared.
