Stamp Collection II finally available

Stamp Collection II cover photoFor the last two years of Na/GloPoWriMo (National/Global poetry writing month), I have used postage stamps as daily writing prompts. Finally, the book from last year’s stamp-poem collection is done and published. It is titled, of course, Stamp Collection II – More Poems Inspired by Postage Stamps.

In addition to the stamp-poems, this book has my commentary for each poem. Also, it alternates between vintage poems and modern “forever” stamps which makes for an interesting mix of themes.  I dug out my childhood stamp collection to get the vintage stamps. The cover photo shows two of my old mint sets (a mint set contains all the stamps issued by the US Postal Service for a specific year.)

If you want a copy of the book, click on the cover photo or links.

April, poetry writing month 2019 is fast approaching. This year the prompts will be World Stamps. If you’d like to contribute an international stamp for the book, leave a comment on this page or email me: createthedawn AT gmail DOT com. I will mention you on the page your stamp appears (unless you’d prefer to remain anonymous) when I publish the stamp-poems.
