Thought I’d do some reading links for your Sunday.
First up is probably the best discussions on the continuing anti-education of poetry people. A lot of people are really against the advancement of MFA programs. I try not to get onto my soap box too much but geez people? To each his own. Some MFA, some don’t. Some MFA because they want to study without a plan of being a professor some want to be a professor. I’d be more worried about the number of MBA programs. Where did that get us?
Let’s take a vacation from all that debate. Next up is the current poetry issue of The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature. Click by and sit for a spell.
Or, what if you wanted to go a bit more European? You could read Melanie Faith’s essay Sketches of Italia which is a nice quick read of non-fiction and a poem.
For some more excellent reading stop by The Northville Review‘s current issue. Lots of great pop culture infused stories with my favorite, although hard to be a favorite, probably Roxanne Gay’s piece but to be fair to all the work I’m just linking to the main page.
And to close out, if you can’t embarrass you family once in while then what is life for? My sister started her own little bloggy poo. Ah baby sister’s.
Hope everyone has been having a good weekend. I’m playing a bit of catch up so I need to be off!
