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

What a week! Let’s take a look at how it all unfolded:


We reached 6,300 all-time views this week (2000 WP visitors) compared to last week’s 5600 (1,800 visitors)–that means we brought in 700 views this week 200 unique visitors (about four poems a visitor). We pulled in over 130 likes this week from WP users, and over 200 unique visitors from Google and other search engines, not including the WP visitors listed above.


This week we published:

The Web by Ronald E. Shields

Ephermera by Thom Kerr

Silver Trees by Shaun Clamp

Early Freeze by Ann Christine Tabaka

Brain Fluff by Willie Smith

Doorways by Sarah Connor


Our Monthly Paid Competition is coming to a close on the 30th of this month! There’s a lot of competition, so send in your best work! 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.


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.
