Featured Fifty Poetry: We're Seeking Your Best Poems

06/24/2013 06:02 am ET

Dear Readers,

Since we launched Featured Fifty Fiction and then Featured Fifty Fine Arts we have had enormous success uncovering abundantly talented people who have shared their work with us. That got me thinking. If there are so many talented writers, artists and photographers out there, might there not be talented poets as well? At Huff/Post50 we believe there are.

Therefore, we invite all poets to submit their work. Please email your poems to and put "50 poetry" in the subject line. In addition, please include a paragraph or so telling us a bit about you and your poem. We will begin featuring the best submissions next week.

The rules: You must be 50 or older to participate. You can submit only one poem per year. Please send your original poem, that has never been published elsewhere, to

I can't wait to see what is out there that the world will soon get a chance to read.

Bring it on!
