The Traveling Poet
From the Editor
The Traveling Poet is an ezine that publishes poets ages 12-25, art of all mediums, and articles regarding traveling, hitchhiking, poverty, and philosophy. This project’s goal is to display to youth writers that publishing is only a small piece of poetry. We promote creating for Self, and freedom, both in literature and living.
We publish poetry of all genres and topics, but specifically have a soft spot for poems regarding traveling, hitchhiking, cities, and adventure. For art, we seek anything and everything. Again, traveling is the preferred subject, but we want surprises in our inbox. For photography, we only publish pictures implying the act of traveling, or of travelers. This is up to interpretation, but don’t stretch the boundaries too far. The biggest turn-away we can receive, besides not following the submission guidelines, is Beat Generation re-enactments. They had their time. Now it is ours. We seek voices of the 21st century America, not the America 50 years gone.
The We Pick Up Hitchhikers contest will be opening soon, but the details are still under construction
