New online poetry journal raises money for RI Food Bank and Share Our Strength
Word Soup, a new online poetry journal founded by Rhode Island poet Kim Baker, is accepting submissions now through August 1 for its premier issue, due out in September 2013. Poets may send three to five poems per submission. A reading fee of $6/submission will be donated entirely to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank and Share Our Strength, a national organization focused on childhood hunger.
“Word Soup wants to end hunger one poem at a time,” says Baker. “To that glorious end, we are seeking well-crafted poems on the theme of hunger. Imagine “hunger” in all its possible meanings, from physical food deprivation to hunger for love, acceptance, actualization.”
