Might You Become One of My Guest Contributors?
Speaking of Guest Contributors, I’m just getting started today (July 29, 2021); but, I’ve already got a contribution of her copyrighted Haiku poetry from a wonderful author, Katherine Gotthardt, who has published several books and is a prolific writer/poet. (see below)! Soon, I’ll be inviting a select few additional contributors, who meet certain criteria, to share their Haiku poetry with us, along with their websites and/or contact information for those poets. Stay tuned!
If you would like to submit entries to be a Guest Contributor on the group Guest Contributor page, Click Here to review the criteria and Click Here to see a copy of the submission form. You’ll need to email me at MyPersuasivePresentations@gmail.com and put “Guest Contributor Inquiry” in the subject line to ask questions or to get a copy of the submission form, as it must be signed.
In case you don’t already know how to create Haiku-style poetry, Click Here, and I’ll tell/show you. It’s easy. Fun. Does not have to rhyme. You don’t have to be an expert to do it. For more formal info and some history, Click Here.

I’m counting my years
in ounces. How fast teacups
pile up, drained and stained.
I’m in hot water
again, pouring tea into
your forbidden cup.
You drink from a jar,
tea leaves drowned at the bottom.
You’ll leave them there, too.
