Ya'Sou! Ezine is now closed and has been for quite a while. I am no longer accepting any submissions. Thank You.
Ya'Sou! Ezine is a creative arts online magazine being published on a daily basis. It was started over a decade ago in print form and transformed onto an online platform when hard copy printing costs increased to a level where I could no longer afford to print and mail a hard copy version.
I created Ya'Sou! as a tribute to my Mother Dorothy who always encouraged my writing and poetical interests. If it were not for her I seriously do not think I would have become a poet/writer. This ezine is a tribute to her memory and a way for me to give back to the creative community a piece of myself in honor of my Mom who passed away in 1994.
I'm always asked about the name Ya'Sou! Though spelled a bit different, the Greek meaning is "To Yours" which is commonly used as a toast on special occasions. I decided on the name because it was different and also a celebration of my Mom and our Greek heritage.
In the last month I changed the platform from that of a website to a blog for many reasons. The most important reason being exposure. As a blog platform the poetry, writing and artwork on the ezine will receive much more exposure and that is what we all want and need. However to keep the ezine running I need constant content. I want to be able to post poetry, writing, artwork and photography on the blog everyday so that I can continue to advertise Ya'Sou! on a daily basis with fresh content. Right now the content consists mainly of poetry though I would like to expand into other creative arts.
We seek new, emerging and seasoned artists for the ezine. Everyone is welcome as long as the artwork is good quality.
Submission guidelines are located under the about link on the blog which can be found at http://yasouezine.typepad.com
So, if you would like a home for your creative talents or would just like more exposure, then please check us out.
