Open Heart Farming is a special annual edition of Open Heart Forgery, published from 2012 through 2017, featuring food and farming themed poems by residents of Nova Scotia. The poems are poignant, passionate, political, reminiscent, and frolicking.
We believe that submitting a poem should be a positive experience. We believe in making poetry easily accessible in print and online. Open Heart Farming wants to re-kindle a love for written and spoken poetry. We love to share the stories of the poets and their poems, and give poets opportunities to read and perform their poems publicly. Poets have read at events and venues including farmers markets, libraries, and food gatherings.
We invite you to fall in love with Open Heart Farming and the poetry of the land!
OHFarming editor Mary Ellen Sullivan compiled selected poems from annual OHFarming issues into four themed collections.
