The WordPress writing community has been incredibly kind and supportive of our dream–it’s time to give back!
We want to be different, here at Vita Brevis. Our first four weeks have been kind to us: we’ve earned quite the following and quite the number of donations from both our readers and submitters! This warms our hearts. By supporting us, you are supporting a large number of talented, hardworking poets whose voices need to be heard. So…
IT’S TIME TO GIVE BACK
As we promised in the earlier weeks, we would like to introduce monthly, paid poetry competitions. First-place winners will be awarded $15 via PayPal–we can finally pay you for your work!
We expect this to draw a lot of attention on WordPress–frankly, probably too much attention for our small team to handle. But let’s see how it works. No reading fees or paywalls to weed serious submitters out from others, just free submissions and a lot of trust on our part that the WordPress community won’t exploit this opportunity for poets!
So, check it out here, and consider buying us a “coffee” to fund our future competitions, like so many other kind poets have! We will continue hosting this competition so long as our incoming donations.
Thank you for all of your support!
