Week Eight in Review: Statistics, Call for Submissions, Competitions, and More!

This was a great week! Let’s see what happened:


We reached 5,600 all-time views this week (1,800 visitors) compared to last week’s 4,900 (1,600 visitors)–that means we brought in 700 views this week 200 unique visitors (about four poems a visitor). We reached 1,300 all-time likes, compared to last week’s 1,200, which means we’ve had a healthy 100-like growth this week. We had over 400 unique visitors from Google and other search engines alone (and 200 through social media)! Your poems aren’t just reaching WordPress anymore!


This week we published:

Understanding the Fiction by Nick Catron

12/18/17 by Jim Spencer

Bare Feet by Willie Smith

Life at the Center by Nick Catron

Arctic Winds by Ivor Steven


Our Monthly Paid Competition has been getting a lot of attention! We’re excited to have the ability to pay you for your work in a world that seldom can, and we hope this competition drives traffic to our site, thus to our talented submitters’ work! You can find more information here.


That does it for this week–stay tuned, we have some great poems coming.

The Vita Brevis Team

“Ars longa, vita brevis" (art is long, life is short). This maxim so moved us that it seemed only right to title our online poetry magazine after it. It may seem curious that we chose Vita Brevis (life is short) as our title instead of Ars Longa (art is long). But this choice was more than appropriate; after all, the aim of our journal is to publish work that shows a keen awareness of not only art’s beauty and immortality but life’s toils and finiteness. We want to revive and nourish the rich existential literature that forms when art and the human endeavor collide.
