I also have a desk now, so I'd like to think that my output will be far greater than in the past months. I mean I'm writing now aren't I? Speaking of writing, a few call to words:
Constraint: 100 words about sex that don't include words about sex!
Also, my old friend Edwin is putting out a Journal of short prose poems called Drupe Fruits. Email me for extended details, but this is the jist, open to all creative souls:
"This is a call for short prose poems of no more than 175 words to appear in a journal entitled “drupe fruits”. feel free to play around within the paragraph medium, indent or don’t, break paragraphs conventionally or unconventionally, you know... do your thing.
The appeal to the form comes from its narrative possibility coupled with its poetic thrift and attention, its acknowledgement of the paragraph as self-fullfilling and innately distilled, and for an acknowledgment of the natural cadence and musicality of language without line breaks, and blank space common of poetic work.
Please send 1-5 pieces to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a very short and lively bio of no more than two sentences. submissions due by sept. 15th, 2010 for issue #1."
Do it, you won't?
KSJ, doesn't my new template remind you of My Life Without Me? That's why I chose it. <3
