Watch for the full Texas Poetry Spotlight and giveaway in the Sunday, April 11 issue of Lone Star Literary Life. Here's what to expect:
Lone Star Lit is celebrating National Poetry Month with our first annual Texas Poetry Spotlight! Texas poets and poetry provide great variety in subjects and forms.
We’ve got haiku, ghazals, villanelles, free verse, sonnets, odes, epistles, and elegies; lyric and narrative; free verse and rhymed poetry. We’ve got pilots, beer, God, jokers, Olympics, reverse psychology, parks, the pandemic, botany, van Gogh, nidus, violence, and joy. We’ve got Texas people, places, critters, and history; and, of course, love in all its permutations.
