Fillers Wanted :)

The September issue is with the printer, a great issue filled with diverse themes, topics and styles. Plenty to interest everyone πŸ™‚

Now I’m looking for ‘fillers’ (and longer poems, stories and articles) for upcoming issues. This issue will be number 179 since the first issue of Positive Words magazine in 2002 and I’m still amazed at the amount of little spaces each month. All submissions are always appreciated and I’m hoping for lots in the Haiku, Limerick, very-short-poem size as well as micro or flash fiction. Hard copy, snail mail…send to Sandra James, Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote Victoria 3523. Thanks πŸ™‚

And don’t forget the mini-competition for August (word for the month BASKET) needs to be posted by 31 August. mini themes 2017

And…entries are open for the Positive Words End-of-Year Short Story & Poetry Competition. Get your entry form here : Entry form
