The Prolific Pulse is accepting Anthology Submissions
“Heart Beats” is an anthology of poetry about the various aspects of what makes us tick or makes a heart-beat.
This will be about love, life, happiness, anything that makes life more joyful or tolerable.
Let’s face it. These are tough times and there have been many events in 2020 which have many of us shaking our heads. People who were once friends have gone their separate ways. Some are soul searching, examining life more closely as time has leant more for this.
Heart Beats is about working through and maybe even overcoming these challenges. It is about what brings smiles to our faces or, at least, in our hearts.
Submissions will be accepted until December 31, 2020 What a great way to end this year.
