Bartholomew Barker is one of the organizers of Living Poetry, a collection of poets and poetry lovers in the Triangle region of North Carolina. Born and raised in Ohio, studied in Chicago, he worked in Connecticut for nearly twenty years before moving to Hillsborough where he makes money as a computer programmer to fund his poetry habit.
Bartholomew, I am not sure what is being requested? Do you want us to post our poems in the comments section? Are there any guidelines or restrictions (like poem length)?
I am the founder of the Holly Springs Writers Guild. We often do things a Lulu.com headquarters in Morrisville. Would you like to be added to our mailing list?
All are encouraged to post poems based on the prompt in the comments sections. No guidelines or restrictions though some publications consider any poem that appears online “published” so I would suggest just posting first drafts.
And please add me to your mailing list, email@example.com. I’ll cross post any poetry related events to the LP meetup group.
