Here is 3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week from the just released Spring issue. This is one of 3 winning poems from our annual contest.
A preview from the upcoming Spring issue of 3rd Wednesday.
This year’s 3rd Wednesday Poetry Contest judge, Joy Gaines-Friedler’s poem, Detroit, is up at Vox Populi along with some of her photographs.
Summer’s official end was yesterday but the memory of it lingers. Here’s 3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week from M. J. Iupppa. It’s from our autumn issue, avialable now at Amazon.
Something special from the just released Autumn issue of 3rd Wednesday: A flash piece by Ron Koertge (yes, that Ron Koertge). Ron is a poet and novelist specializing in youth fiction. His latest poetry collection is Yellow Moving Van. His flash fiction collection, which he told me that wrote “one-a-day” is titled Sex World. I suspect Ron, like the Canadian rockers Barnaked Ladies, thought the name would mean a big seller.
You can read the issue free at our website and print copies are on sale at Amazon.com.
Third Wednesday’s Poem of the Week:
California poet Claire Rubin, a favorite of ours, penned this poem for our upcoming fall issue, a wonderful example of a persona poem, one that conveys its message with wry humor. It’s also qualifies as an ekphrastic poem.
From the summer issue of 3rd Wednesday: Our poem of the week by John Grey. This issue is avialable free in PDF format from our website. The print edition is just $6 from Amazon.
3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week is by Leslie Schultz of Northfield, Minnesota. Leslie will be joining us as a guest editor for the Winter issue of 3W.
“Punting: Love it. Not a wasted word. Great answer to a lovelorn suitor.”
