Finished an issue of The Colorado Review over the weekend. I believe I received the subscription because I entered their first book contest. I really enjoyed the fiction and non-fiction in this journal but not so much the Poetry so I don’t think I will be sending my poetry their way in the future. But, definitely a good read for fiction and non-fiction. I have an extra issue I probably won’t read if anyone is interested.
Wanted to give a shout out to my publisher, Folded Word, and the Ning they started. I tried to start a Ning once but it was a bit overwhelming in what I wanted to do with it. Folded Word plans to use theirs for contributors and fans of their projects. Their first will be a chat on November 1st for the new Twitter zine unFold. My chapbook, The Wait of Atom, will also have a web release on that site around Nov 9th so you can chat with me. Whee!
This new poetry site Ink Node is by invitation only to post your poems but you can register and subscribe to poets. If you click through on Ink Node above I put up a previously unpublished poem that will appear in Paper House, my upcoming full length collection.
Have I given a shout out to Poet Mom before? If I haven’t. I should have. I’m not a Mom but I am a poet and Poet Mom always has good posts about living the live of work, poetry, family etc. Stop by and have a read.
Here is a blog I don’t normally follow but I might start because this post for poets starting out, trying to get published. Quality stuff.
Monday always seems to go by too fast, but at least I slept well last night and I’m looking forward to a nice, slowed down kind of week as I give myself a chance to get better from that stupid sinus infection I had. Sometimes, I just forget to take it easy. Have a great week everyone!
