I’ve been writing cadralore for a while now, after being introduced to the form by Jane Dougherty, however this was the first time I had submitted any for publication, so I was delighted when two of my poems were chosen for inclusion in Issue 4.

Really do like yours a lot, Ingrid. Well done.
Glad you like them, Misky, thank you!
Congrats for getting published at Gleam Poets. Well-deserving indeed. You master forms and styles so well.
Thank you kindly Lamittan!
You’re most welcome, Ingrid.
Congratulations, Ingrid! I read your poems earlier this morning when Jane posted that hers were in the issue. I like both of yours. I guess I don’t follow Gleam–I’d sort of forgotten about the journal. . .
It is worth submitting if you have time! I really enjoyed the readings last night too 😊
I can’t seem to get the hang of writing cadralors, but I’ll try to remember to look for their next call for submissions.
I keep my stanzas short 😅
I noticed. 😀
Congratulations, Ingrid. 💕👏🙌💕
Thank you Grace! 💖
I’d steeled myself to join the event, but it started too late—midnight here. I’d been asleep for an hour then! Very full day yesterday.
It was late enough for me 😅
Good ones! I particularly enjoyed I, III and V. Well done!
Well done, Ingrid. Congratulations.
Thank you Ken!

Congratulations Ingrid – I remember this form being discussed on d’Verse (I think) and having a stab. Love your submissions.
Thank you Marion 😊
Congrats Ingrid! It’s a beautiful poem!
Congratulations on the publication of your two lovely poems, Ingrid. I greatly enjoyed reading your poems. Such a beautiful publication! I tried to write a cadralor recently, but got excited and added another verse, so I took the numbers out! 🙂
This story makes me smile, Cheryl: poetry is exciting 😊
