Hitchhiking poems across the Internet

The Traveling Poet is sticking it’s thumb back out and seeking literary rides across the internet.

A son of Nostrovia! Poetry, The Traveling Poet has the following message for you:

Hello.  I am The Traveling Poet.  I hitchhike around the internet seeking experiences.  I am habitually bored with much of the literature I stumble through, and seek innovation, extremists, those who are not afraid to cut themselves open for what they love.

I am a publisher of poets ages 12-25, and articles regarding traveling with holes in your pockets.  I also seek cultural rants and despise elitists.

I do not romanticize the road’s freedom, but do encourage others to grow through pushing their personal boundaries.

The Traveling Poet is managed by founder Jeremiah Walton and new hitchhiker Scott-Patrick Mitchell.  Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, and publishing will resume October 1st, 2014.

Poetry is only accepted from poets ages 12-25, but photography, articles, and art are accepted from all ages.  There is a special interest in traveling, especially hitchhiking and train hopping, but all topics and interests are welcome in submissions.

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
