The Origami Poems Project has been publishing free microchaps of poetry since 2009. We're a Domestic Non-Profit Corporation registered in the State of Rhode Island with our 501(c)3 Non-Profit Federal designation as of 2013.
Free Poetry is our mantra... trying to help the world one microchap at a time.
Read some of our current publications presented on the home page to see the format best suited to our microchaps. We've included poems of single line length to multi-line fictional efforts.
We prefer work that is not exceedingly dark, depressive, or relentlessly violent and/or abusive. In other words, open the window and give us some air and light by the time we've completed our journey with your work.
Winning poems (1st, 2nd, 3rd & Honorable Mentions) will receive a copy of the contest anthology (published via Amazon).
