I want to take a moment out of this day to thank supporters of p2g who have included this site on theirs, sending submissions its way. Already in 2016, poems2go has tripled its viewership.
Here’s a listing of their worthwhile websites. Check them out!
p2g welcomes poet Sarah Lain as one of its ambassadors. She will be supplying two venues in St. Petersburg, and Tampa to broaden p2g’s readership, and helping out as a reader for all the terrific submissions coming in everyday. Thank you Sarah, and thanks to all of the poets submitting work, considering p2g as a possible home for their poetry. We’re happy to be reading submissions from students to nonagenerians, from all over the world.
To welcome in 2016, we have five new featured poets and their poems. One is a local, another is a national, and three are global. p2g is thrilled to be reaching beyond its New England borders, bringing poetry from around the world, and bringing us all closer to our sense of universality and experience as a collective whole.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,200 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 37 trips to carry that many people.
p2g is now listed on NewPages, the premiere listing sight for literary venues. NewPages is news, information, and guides to literary magazines, independent publishers, creative writing programs, alternative periodicals, indie bookstores, writing contests, and more.
Since its first publication in July 2015, p2g has expanded from a local poet venue to a nationwide venue and now an international venue. We’ve had more than 500 visitors and over 2000 views. This is only the online visibility. More than 1000 print copies of poems are distributed monthly.
We’re excited to keep it growing. Thank you for supporting this Witter Bynner Foundation of Poetry grant-funded project.
