Hi. Welcome to the Spring 2001 of "In Our Own Words," the Ezine from BBBooks.
We are a grass roots organization, not a corporate entity, so we don't dance to the dollar sign. You can expect to find thought- provoking, creative, alternative writing, information and politics right here. We offer the "People Before Profits Poetry Prize" each year and offer all kinds of other stuff for writers, poets, students, educators, spiritual types, feminists, humanists, tradespeople and activists. We're people who follow their conscience, but like to have fun too!
he writers in this edition
of "In Our Own Words" range in age from their 20s to
their 80s. Much of the writing
came from creative writing classes held in Oakland, California, composition classes in San Francisco, CA and from writers across the country who sumbitted writing to "In Our Own Words" or our poetry contests.
is simple: Writers respond to life; they chronicle our times
and remind us what it is like to be human.

How You Can Be Published:
several ways. You can also send in poetry or short prose of
your own to be considered for IN OUR OWN WORDS, our ezine. We
also recommend looking at the Classifieds in Poets
and Writers Magazine, visiting our Calls
for Submission Page, or entering a contest, similar to our annual "Burning Bush Poetry Prize." Only entries that include
a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope) will be returned, so
be sure to include this with your work. See
our editorial philosophy.
