About





Welcome to Pitching Pennies Poetry. It is a rather strange name for a poetry blog, so I will explain. Years ago, sitting in an all night cafe sipping coffee and in a lively discussion about peace and war, I made a statement that ultimately peace would be attained not with guns and bombs but with poets' pens and artists' brushes. A very hawkish acquaintance (my creative writing prof ) told me I'd do better pitching pennies ... and there you have it.

Poetry is my passion. I am also the keeper of the key at Pitching Pennies Poetry at Wordpress.com  and Poets and Writers of the Peaceful Pub at Wordpress.com

I hope you will pay us a visit there too. So glad you're here.

 Let's make poetry  ~  Let's make peace!
