Price, editors. The Walt Whitman Archive. As I watch the stars shining, I think a thought of the clef of the universes, and of the future. Do you suppose I wish to enjoy life in other spheres? I say distinctly I comprehend no better sphere than this earth,. I comprehend no better life than the life of my body.
But I know well that whatever it is, it is best for me,. And I know well that what is really Me shall live just as much as before.
Books by Whitman
This is an open mic, so anyone who follows those steps and provides a recordings of sufficient sound quality and appropriate length will have their poems played and shown on an upcoming broadcast at some point as soon as there is room. Because some publishers might consider this a form of "publication," we recommend that you only send poems that have already been published, but that choice is yours to make.
If your poem responds specifically to a poet we have in an upcoming episode, put their name in the title line of the submission so we know to try to get it in that week. After submitting the poem and audio file, please subscribe to our YouTube channel! If you'd also like to submit artwork, please use this category and submit up to six JPGs. Most often we only use art for our covers, which are full-bleed, 9" x 6".
In order to publish a cover we will need a file with at least ppi—but please submit smaller screen-res files no larger than 1 MB each or so for now, to keep the servers happy. Artwork should somehow relate to the theme. We also prefer to have covers with vibrant colors, rather than black and white. Skip to Main Content Home.
