Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will there be another Poetry Advent Calendar in December? How/When can I submit to it?
A: Yes, check back here mid-Nov for submissions and Dec 1st for the first poem

Q: I wasn't successful with my 2011 submission, should I submit again?
A: Yes, just because you weren't successful this time around, it doesn't mean that your work wasn't good enough, I had a lot of submissions with only 31 calendar days available

Q: Who are you?!
A: My name is Zach Roddis, I study English BA (Hons) at Manchester Metropolitan University, I write/perform poetry regularly. This blog was just a little idea I had an a boring November weekend. I am going to be cheeky and end this post with a poem of my own

'A Poem from the Future'

Keep Calm and Carry On

Keep Calm and Carry On

The Deftones are on MTV
Rihanna is on the front cover of NME
Rage Against The Machine are on a Christmas CD
Keep Calm and Carry On

The NHS is on it's arse
The X Factor is still a farse
The Olympics had a false start
Keep Calm and Carry On

The Hadron Collider discovered nothin'

Keep Calm and Carry On

There's a war that's far from over
The Simpsons killed off Homer
As for the economy; I could've told ya
Keep Calm and Carry On

Happy New Year Everyone

Peace & Love
