selections from the Write Idea's
2nd annual Stirred Poet competition
Our writers forum – The Write Idea – and our magazine – The Right Eyed Deer – are looking for submissions of poetry, fiction and art.
The Write Idea is a global community with nominally a membership of 500 plus, though realistically we have a regular core of maybe 60 writers around the world.
We have a great selection of poets and take part in the IBPC competition every month - that's a competition between 19 poetry forums - and swept the board in last years 'Poem of the Year' contest with a solid 1-2-3.
We also have novelists, flash fiction and short fiction sectors that are pretty busy. It costs nothing to join, nothing to stay there. It is a supportive community of writers helping writers.
The Right Eyed Deer magazine is published approximately quarterly, offering its issues as a free PDF download or as a print magazine. Two Canadian fiction editors and two UK poetry editors give a reflection of the global reach and readership. A non-paying market, but listed on Duotrope and looking to grow. Seeks poetry, fiction, art and articles on writing for Issue 8.
