Two Books In Print

WelcomingHopeCoverBorder

We have two books in print.  They can both be ordered at the Time Of Singing books page.  You will note that the price is 5 dollars per copy, and 3 for 12 dollars.  You can combine this special offer with both books.  All proceeds benefit TOS.

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is a poetry anthology, edited with Lora Homan Zill and Charles A. Waugaman.  Charles created the beautiful cover art, and illustrated the book.  There is a description of the book and a list of the poets at the Time Of Singing books page.

Quiet Christmas Poetry is my large print chapbook, created from my site of the same name.

Thank you!

Time Of Singing: A Journal Of Christian Poetry

I am enjoying the new Summer 2017 Time Of Singing.  Lora Homan Zill is Editor, and H. Edgar Hix served as the Contributing Editor for this issue.

Nancy Esther James and I served as Contest Judges.  The Contest for this issue was Haiku, Tanka, and Senryu.  There are also Editor’s Choices.  I enjoyed reading the many good poems that were offered.  You can read more about TOS Contests here.

You may also be interested to read Lora Zill’s Editor’s Arias.

Quote by Madeleine L’Engle

“The important thing is to recognize that our gift, no matter what the size, is indeed something given us, for which we can take no credit, but which we may humbly serve, and, in serving, learn more wholeness, be offered wondrous newness.”

Madeleine L’Engle

Time Of Singing: A Journal Of Christian Poetry

I am reading the Spring 2017 issue of Time Of Singing: A Journal Of Christian Poetry.  Lora Homan Zill is Editor.  Contributing Editors for this issue are Cleo Griffith and Violet Nesdoly.  Photos in the issue are by Patricia Jackson Conway.

Time Of Singing is a print journal.  I have shared TOS with others over the years, and continue to receive notes of appreciation.

My mother wrote page numbers on the covers, to note publications of my poems.  I have these issues now, and they are special remembrances of my mother’s encouragement.

Poetry is a gift that is appreciated and grows in meaning over time.

You can read more at the TOS site.  Audrey Stallsmith is Webmaster.

Each issue is a work of art.  Thought it would be good to write a post for National Poetry Month.
