I seem to be having one of those days where the day is going ZOOM. In any case I have really enjoyed blogging this week so I wanted to make sure to poke my head in first thing and get my favorite blog of the week posted.
I do have a few items to share before my poem of the week. The first is an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education yet I think it has something to say to anyone who lives their life with a curious nature, which is most writers I know.
I also want to give a shout out to my poet-artist friend Amy Bagwell as she has this great new website that shows how she puts poems and art together. You’ll love this!
And from just the other day a reader of this blog reminded me of the resource The Review Review if you are looking for literary magazines to read and submit to.
My poem for this week was actually typed on my phone while I was waiting before one of the various meetings I had this week. This is the original version I think. I haven’t had any time to work on revising. This poem started from a title prompt I had for myself for my painter poem chapbook project but it morphed away from the title so I’ll hold that prompt to myself – for now – and work on it again later.
–off for revision!
Please share, in comments, anything you have been working on and I’ll take down any works in progress next week. You can also post links if you are posting on your blog.
Besides a busy week at the computer writing and revising (and let’s face it procrastinating by doing things like “research” on other projects) I also found some time to submit work this week.
Next week I’ll spend most of four days at a local conference sponsored by the UNCC branch of the National Writing Project.I plan to attend the conference digitally so I’m hoping to be able to blog, tweet, facebook etc while at the conference. I won’t take any paper with me! I’ll have to report in how that goes
