Ziegler said, “Poetry is inspired by the pulse of the human heart and is made to reflect the pulse of the moment during which it was conceived. Nothing is off limits in poetry because it’s all experimentation. Poetry is simply an essay on life.”
Over the month of April, Ziegler will engage the community in a variety of poetry events that will inspire others to share poetry related to “the echo.” Ziegler will share poems from the community in an online poetry journal that facilitates a dialogue of poems that speak to the larger influence of sound in poetry and the reverberation of the echo. More information and the call for submissions to the online poetry journal are available at http://www.communitypoetry2012.blogspot.com/. Poems may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be original and previously unpublished.
