Sponsored by Workhorse, Lexington Poetry Month is an easy to use
platform for poets to publish and share their work in an attractive
way. The community is supportive and diverse, commenting and
encouraging one another throughout June. Money we raise goes
to maintaining the cost of the website and publishing the yearly
anthology. Our goals are to provide every poet (~150) a copy of
the anthology, lower printing costs, and expand opportunities
offered during Lexington Poetry Month, such as featured readings
and poetry workshops.
Since LexPoMo was born, Jordan starts each year looking forward to June. She holds a B.A. in English with a Spanish minor from the University of Kentucky. In her final semester, she rediscovered poetry and fell in love. Jordan has been published in campus literary magazines, as well as contributing poetry to the LexPoMo culminating anthologies. She now resides in Paris, KY with her family and is so grateful for the chance to submit again this June.
Reason for signing up:
I've desperately missed reading local poetry from names I have begun to recognize, and I'm excited to read submissions from those I don't know yet. It's been shamefully too long since I've produced poems on even a semi-regular basis, so I really needed something to kick-start the creative process.
