Limit your poems to no more than four. Tell us how and why you were inspired to write your poem/s as it relates to an interaction with Yuyutsu whether it was at one of his readings, at one of his workshops, through his poetry, in an acquaintance online (or in person) where you were introduced to him through his poetry. If you have already submitted a poem and have not included why you were inspired, please send me an additional note to the email above. We also would love to hear from you in the comment below, so that we might start a discussion on how a poet such as Yuyutsu inspires other works.
We look forward to reading your submissions.
