The Poetics Project is Looking for Contributors!


Content on The Poetics Project is currently written by a few editors and contributors. While the blog cannot offer financial compensation for posts at this time, contributors are able to use any content written for the blog in their personal writing portfolios and have the opportunity to share their work with a community of storytellers. We can also offer readership—our blog gets nearly 3,000 views each month, and we hope that continues to grow!

The Poetics Project is currently seeking additional contributors to produce content for the blog. Being a contributor varies from person to person. For some, it means writing a monthly column. For others, it means writing weekly, or more. It can mean writing about all the literary stuff you can’t wait to get your hands on, offering writing advice, or interviewing authors. Right now, we are also interested in bringing on book reviewers, but we will take additional column ideas or writers into consideration as well.

If you’re an aspiring writer looking for a platform to share your work—blog posts and creative pieces. If you’re a writer looking for some motivation and freedom, for a place to help you find your voice, then this is the blog for you. If you would like to become a contributor, please send the items listed below to

Things to Include in Your Email:

    • Resume
    • Cover Letter
    • Two Writing Samples

In addition, send us a response to the following prompt:

What do you think of profanity in writing?

Write this response as if it were a blog post, anywhere from 500-1000 words. We want to hear your voice!
