1. This National publication in the photo below published one of my short poems in their January 2012 issue. They paid me and everything. Hurray. The publication owns the rights for the next three months so I can't share the poem here today. The good news is they have a circulation of 318,000 readers. It's the third time in about fourteen months that they've accepted and published one of my short poems.
2. Bolts of Silk is an online literary zine. Editor Juliet Wilson, based in Edinburgh, Scotland has run the UK blogzine since 2006. The motto of Bolts of Silk is "beautiful poetry with something to say."
Yesterday, my poem Three Horses in the Cold appeared in Bolts of Silk. I invite you to check it out if you haven't yet. Simply click here. To leave a comment at the site (I hope you will) click on the words "poetry lovers" below the poem.
2012 Winter Festival of Poetry
Avol's Bookstore, 315 Gorham Street
February 12th at 2:00 pm
It would be great to see a familiar face or two in the audience. Fyi, plan for the entire event to last about 80 or 90 minutes. All friends and non-hecklers welcome!
