The Current Poet--My New Project (Need your support)

Fellow Wordtrippers,
I have been dreaming about what type of poetry would be the topic of the first book that I will attempt to publish. It has finally come to me and it combines many of my passions.
Below is my description:
Current events are happening all around us and sometimes we are not informed. This site is devoted to contributors taking current events from their hometowns and posting it to the site. Then my job comes in--I take your news sources and write poetry out of that article. The Current Poet is here to serve the people and freedom of expression is the name of the game. If you don't want to post directly to the site, then send me an email at with your selections.
I also have a facebook writer page and it is just The Current Poet, so become a fan.
Please support this new endeavor. The poems I post are not edited and I will need feedback after I post them. Also, I need contributors, so please please contribute if you enjoy current events.

Thanks for reading!
