Dear Friends of Wake Up And Smell The Poetry

During these days of pandemic/quarantine my friend Cynthia Franca and I have been working on collecting poems and stories for a community-minded anthology that might serve to promote a sense of hope for facing challenging times like this current 2020 pandemic.

We have received quite a few submissions but I would like to send out one more reminder to this email list as invitation to all of you who have participated
in past programs of Wake Up And Smell The Poetry.

The deadline for submissions is May 30th.
Might you have an original poem or story to share that could serve to offer hope and inspire others ? If interested, please take a look at the submission guidelines below.

Take good care each day.
