Call for Postage Stamps

Cuban stamp from KalaMy friend Kala sent me this photo of an old Cuban stamp she found in an antique dictionary that was owned by a military captain.

She inspired me to use stamps from all over the world as poetry prompts during April poetry writing month.

I’d like all of you to participate. If you have a cool stamp from your country or a country you visited, 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 post & publish the poem your stamp inspires.

This will be fun. It is a cool feeling to put the control of prompts in your hands instead of me choosing the stamps.

Looking forward to seeing your stamps!

-Dawn, CreatetheDawn

    • Hello Anya. I visited your site and read you’re latest. You write with a nice flow. Do you have your stamp series on your website? I’d love a link to them. Would you like to share a stamp with my project? Maybe it could be one from your series. -Dawn
