LIVING ABOVE THE FROST LINE (this blog) WILL SOON CELEBRATE 4TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY

On October 29, 2012, Living Above the Frost Line (this blog) will celebrate it's 4th year anniversary. The focus here  remains poetry written in the American South, especially poems from the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The goal is to feature poets who are  writing poetry now with samples of what are they writing? Another focus will continue to be  life in the Blue Ridge and Southern Appalachian Mountains. A current call for poetry submissions will be given  each week beginning November 1st.






LIVING ABOVE THE FROST LINE IS A DWELLING PLACE FOR PRACTICING POETS. IT IS THE HOME OF POET, NANCY SIMPSON. ABOVE THE FROST LINE WE GIVE OURSELVES SOME EXTRA GROWING TIME. YES, WE KNOW THE HARD FREEZE WILL COME, BUT UNTIL IT ARRIVES, WE SHALL GROW AND SHARE OUR POEMS.




If you are interested, please leave a comment.  Thank you.

Congratulations on your fourth year anniversary. I well remember the day we all sat and hit the "publish" button for the first time.

Keep up the good work you do promoting poetry my friend. Hope all is well with you.
