Cellpoems will return on January 11, 2014!

We’ll be on hiatus until just after the first of the year. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook for updates on our contributors, blasts from cellpoems’ past and more. Thanks for your patience. We will be back soon, better than ever.

Summer Vacation

Dear friends:

Cellpoems is taking a short break for the summer months. We plan to return the first week of September, and have already lined up a slate of new (very short) poems for you.

We will still be accepting submissions through the summer, and plan on keeping you updated on our travels and projects via Twitter and Facebook.

We close out another great year with two poems: one from Aubrey Jane Ryan (which is already on our website), and a very special poem from seven-year old Patrick Pethybridge entitled “Not a Moon,” which is on its way to subscribers this afternoon.

Thank you for friending, following, and subscribing this year. We hope you all have a wonderful summer, and we can’t wait to bring you more beautiful poems in 140 characters this fall.

The Editors

We’re Back!

Gentle Readers:

Those of you who tried to come to our website during the last few weeks discovered that our site was down for maintenance. Thank you for your patience while we were away dealing with issues that included (but were not limited to): a protracted website migration, an orphaned domain that could only be recovered with multiple faxes to Australia, a trip to the ER for a taco dinner-related finger injury, an EKG and lung X-ray to facilitate a trip to China, and one full viewing of Troll II. Doesn’t that sound like an outline for the best “What I Did On My Summer Vacation” essay ever? We think so too, so we’ve decided to call the last few weeks our summer vacation — and we’re so happy that school is back in session early this year.

With love,
