The Sunday Morning Poet

Our new weekly poetry program begins next Sunday

by LamontPaul, Founder & Publisher
first published: May, 2023

approximate reading time: minutes

New poetry every Sunday in Outsideleft. From now on.


It’s happening. 


We’ve been thinking about it for a while. 

But beginning on May 21, 

We’ll pull back the curtain on 

Outsideleft’s new weekly poetry section, 

The Sunday Morning Poet. 


The Sunday Morning Poet.


The Sunday Morning Poet 

Is going to be perfect for people with no work on Sundays. 

This is poetry for people who 

don’t have to walk their dogs, 

don’t do park runs, 

don’t go to church. 


That’s not to say this excludes Popes and Vicars, 

but we know they’re busy

On Sundays especially.


This is for people 

who love words in small amounts, 

for people who value time 

and how they choose to use it. 

This is for all who move slowly on Sunday mornings.  


Ha! Yes, inspired by the Saturday Evening Post, 

the pictorial magazine that informed so many 

Americans in the 20th Century, 

weekly poetry, 

capturing the week, 

capturing the moment, 

saying something or 

saying nothing. 


Who is to say? 


See you Sunday May 21st.

All About and Contributors


Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]


If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
