FREE VERSE REVOLUTION is self revolution through poetry and short prose. The writers you find here fit our mission of unique literature. This blog was first begun by Nicholas Gagnier (who still features regularly on the site) before he handed it over to Kristiana Reed (known for running My Screaming Twenties on WordPress).
With the soft re-launch in October 2018, my focus became to share and foster the talent we were already acquainted with and find new writers. These contributions come from writers I love who I reach out to, and excellent guest submissions. Anyone can submit a piece in line with the month’s theme. Free Verse Revolution is not a collective, it is a community so I will never pressure our contributors or guests to submit each month. I simply want to share the work of talented writers from all around the globe.
To foster this community, every Thursday I share a writing prompt, which ties in to the monthly theme, and ask readers and writers to enjoy a little freedom of thought to respond. Response posts are linked in the comments and every Sunday I unveil the Sunday Best, the top three responses to the week’s prompt.
My ultimate goal is to celebrate the revolutions within ourselves, in our voices and in our styles, through the art we create with words and storytelling. I hope you enjoy the work you find here and consider lending your pen to this community.
