Old Boots & Poppy
Of course, one cannot have a site for art, literature, and whatever without some art, some literature, and what have you. This page is dedicated to personal writings. While you may find that most of the work is not as professional as you are used to reading from a book or other source, that is because most of these works are not professional works. These are the creative works of people who want to put their writings out there for you to read and hopefully enjoy.
If you would like to get your stories or poems up here where others can share in your creativity, please contact us and send us what you have. See the instructions below for how to do that.
Please, no obscenities or overly suggestive material. We do not have to like what you write, approve of your skill or syntax, but we need it to be as suitable for human consumption as possible. We will read it over for just these reasons and will publish if these policies are held to. See our submission and copyright laws at the bottom of this page for further information.
What we need to know:
1.) Full name, 2.) An email address for notifications from us, and 3.) An alias if that is what you would prefer to publish your work under. Kids under 18 must provide an alias always, please. We will not share any information about you on our site or release any such information to anyone, ever. All your information is just for our use in communicating with YOU.
