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. In April 2017 we published 'The Best of Kindness, II,' a collection of poems submitted during our 2nd Annual Kindness contest.
There is no fee to submit and are microchaps are free to download and enjoy.
Please wait 6 months between submissions.
We are closed for submissions in April and July - August.
And, yes, donations are gratefully accepted - no matter how small. We have a PayPal account for any random acts of inspired generosity - see our Donations page found under 'Who We Are.'
Download a microchap to see how the poems fit on the single-page PDF. The collections range from Haiku 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.
About 3 times a year we send out a newsletter through MailChimp and will let everyone know about the latest microchaps.
