    Accepting Submissions for Music Themed Issue of The Poeming Pigeon thru June 30

    Let’s face it; we all walk to the beat of a different drummer. So let’s celebrate the individual soundtracks of our lives.

    For our fourth issue of The Poeming Pigeon, we are seeking original poems that explore the topic of music—every style, every genre—from Bolero to Brown-Eyed Girl.

    What song triggers an unexpected walk down memory lane when you hear it on the radio? Write a sonnet based on your ‘desert-island’ playlist? Remember that old mix-tape your sweetheart made for you in high-school? Were you a rock star? Were you a groupie? Got the soul of a singer, but not the voice? Here’s your chance …

    Crank up the stereo and send us your best music-inspired poetry!

    Find details & guidelines at www.ThePoemingPigeon.com.
    (Submissions only through Submittable)
