The Drifting Sands - Poet's Hub

In the spirit of bringing writers and readers together (that's really the goal of any journal, right?) we've created a new dimension to Drifting Sands, that being the Poet's Hub, which you can see here:

The Hub offers writers a platform to share themselves with the readership. Each haiku, tanka, haibun, tanka prose, and/or haiga poet (whether a dsh contributor or not) can have a free, fully-customizable page in what is essentially, a directory of poets. A good way to look at these pages, though, is as bios on steroids. They offer the ability to publish a full bio or resume complete with photos, videos, and other visual content, examples of the poet's work and links to their online resources (including their own blog or website, social media accounts, and their published books online). Each author is limited only by their imagination and the fact that this is a poetry-centric resource.

If you would like our assistance with designing your page, please contact us using the form here:

We're offering live tutorials (group and in-person) on a first-come-first-serve basis to help people get up-and-running with their page. It that doesn't work, we can build the page for you, given the content to work with.

We hope you'll find this project beneficial to you as a poet because, in the spirit of community, it's there for you.

The beauty of art is that it offers the viewer a pathway into their own imagination.
