Testimonials from Weekly Muse Subscribers:
“I'm a Muse subscriber (for about four months) and I am loving all of the content that I receive each week. I'm an ‘emerging’ poet and have only been published in a few journals. I have been writing so many more poems because of the prompts and poetry exercises in each Muse issue, and I've been a bit more courageous in submitting to some of the journals suggested by the Muse. I can honestly say that this publication has completely transformed my writing life, and I would be sad if the Muse were to stop being published! I'm on a budget, but it's worth the $18.99 a month--I consider this my ‘investment’ in my poetry life and it's so worth it. I'm a more confident writer today than I was four months ago.” ~ Sonia R., Weekly Muse Subscriber
"As a published poet, I'm surprised how much I learn each week from the Weekly Muse and how much I'm writing again! Getting this in my inbox every Sunday morning is exactly what I need to stay inspired and keep my writing a priority. Thank you, Two Sylvias, for creating it!" ~ Susan L., Weekly Muse Subscriber
"I only subscribed for the weekly poetry prompts and exercises, but the Weekly Muse has fast become one of the most valuable tools for me as a poet. I've learned so much and I've had poems accepted for publication from Weekly Muse recommendations! The editors of Two Sylvias Press really care about poets and the amount of time and energy put into the Weekly Muse is apparent. Also, I appreciate how they sometimes jump into the private Facebook page to respond to poems and answer poets' questions. I have become a huge fan of Two Sylvias and the Weekly Muse!" ~ John D., Weekly Muse Subscriber
"I was hesitant to subscribe to the Weekly Muse because I had never subscribed to anything before, but I am SO glad I took that risk or I would have never known all I had been missing! I am in my 3rd month of The Weekly Muse and I have written more, submitted more than ever and I've made my writing a priority again! Plus, from your prompts, I've had my poems accepted in three journals AND an anthology! Thank you, Two Sylvias, I see the work that you put in each week and I just wanted to say thank you and please don't ever end the Weekly Muse! It's been a lifechanger for me a a poet. With many thanks and respect for all you do." ~ Jennifer S., Weekly Muse Subscriber
