NEW POETRY WEBSITE INCENTIVE
 
New Poetry Project by Likestarlings
Likestarlings.com is an ambitious new website that gets poets talking in poems. Poets who don?t know each other -and who may be very different - are paired. They begin with a poem by one of them and then write poems back and forth, each responding to the last, until there are two new poems by each poet, and a conversation of five. Poems are published on the site as they are written.
The aims of the project are to discover something in writing in response, to produce good poems, and introduce poets, both well-established and new, to one another. It also offers a new way into reading poems. An associated blog, which includes guest essays, provides a forum for discussing the process and meeting new poets.
We're commissioning poets we like and who would make good pairs at the moment, but would love to hear from those who are interested in taking part. Have a read of the website for submission instructions.
