Poets in Our Neighborhood
The Writing Shed waits for me...
Good morning, Poets.
There are some great things happening in our poetry world right now--
Oliver de la Paz won the Akron Poetry Prize and will have a new book out in 2010. Lucky him and lucky us! Can't wait to read it!
Aimee Nezhukumatathil was featured on New Letters on the Air (my favorite podcast) and you can learn how to say her last name correctly as well as listen to her read some of my favorite poems by her. I hope it's still there, my iTouch was able to download her and David Kirby last week. Both were wonderful podcasts.
Also, Aimee is in American Poetry Review!
As for me, I wrote my first poem of September. My first poem since the weather turned global-warming glorious here in the Northwest.
And I bought an index box for my titles (you can also use a notebook for this...)
So I feel like day by day I'm getting back into my writing life. And hallelujah, does it feel good!
