The Week We Got Revved
Despite the chaotic weather outside our Upper Midwest headquarters and all the ongoing strife in the world, we found a few things this week that jumpstarted our engines.
Chapbooks! Poet and editor Sampson Starkweather loves chapbooks, the old-timey medium of choice or necessity for hand-to-hand self-publishers (at least the ones that don’t want to blow 100 large on a vanity project). His enthusiasm is infectious.
The Found Poetry Project! You don’t have to be a ‘90s baby to know how much fun “found” stuff can be.
Small press books! Our friends at Flavorwire give Small Press Month a helluva sendoff with some cool recommendations.
The Beats! We can’t quit ‘em.
Fest Season! It’s in the air, people.
Metaphors! The University of Virginia is pushing them like weight. (Yes, that’s a simile. Good catch, college boy.)
Coffee! The Bowery Poetry Club has recommenced serving the evil bean.
Translations! Get lost in them.
Subway Poetry! It didn’t go away. It just went underground.
Gnomes! We’d really like to hang out with Feng Sun Chen.
The OWS Poetry Anthology! It’s about 99% of the way toward publication. Find out how to help your least favorite CEO’s least favorite writers.
Sleep! Writers need it, too.
Note: The Week In Review will take a breather in April to make room for Blogsanity! It will return when all the broken glass is swept up.
