YWP Newsletter- 7.9.18

Hello again, this is the second newsletter of July! For me, summer is a great time for writing because there is so much free time and open inspiration. I hope you are getting lots of quiet, summer downtime to write and relax! 

If you already know what the newsletter is, feel free to skip the next paragraph. 

This newsletter highlights writing, audio, images and any happenings in the YWP Community. We are a small band of YWP Community Leaders who also help create Challenges, select Daily Reads, Recommended, and work for Publication. As the editors of the newsletter, our role is to bring you authors extra audience and shine and to bring you readers some special pieces of work. Please pass along this newsletter or the links to the stories to bring the authors even more viewers. Enjoy! 

This week we feature the writing and images of a.harkness02Abriatis, H20.hollym, Sarajaney, Firegirl03, lila woodard, and Kitkat


Summer of Stories is happening! Read more on the homepage (scroll down).

A Robin 
by Abriatis

I catch birds
with fishing nets
and ski poles.

A Goodbye 
by Sarajaney

There is a certain melancholy
In a bare wall.
One that you can't find
In a bare floor.

A wall stripped naked
Marked by stray push pins
Leaving millions of pinholes
That once held up the world.

Little reminders
Marks that connect sisters
Each one passing through just the same
Leaving traces for the next to discover.

This room will transform
Rooms are magic like that.
But no matter how it changes
I've left my mark too.

To her
I was nothing more than a 
a new muse 
to paint 
and then remove along
with the spring cleaning. 

To her
I was nothing but a breathing flaw,
her calloused hands the answer 
to fix me

My tears were the footnotes no
one ever
cared to read.

Tiny Writes 
maybe from
each night).
