Hello Bloginistas! It's time for some silly Wordplay: If one writes a poem against this great government of ours, that is outside the protection from the 1st Amendment, could it be called "Poetreason"? OR, if one writes a poem trying to argue a point to an irrational person (or to try to get a child … Continue reading a quick thought / question
Hello My Precious Bloginistas! I wanted to post really quickly because I realize it's been a fair amount of time since my last post (about three months, 15 days...YIKES, more than just "a fair amount of time", really!).

I especially … Continue reading A quick shout-out to a fabulous blog, “Dispatch From LA”

A very enlightening yet stinging (for me, that is) article on my poetic idol and the process behind how she won the Pulitzer prize for "Live or Die". As far as I am concerned, she did not win it by "default", for her work is so incendiary, inspirational, and truly masterful, that it was well-deserved. … Continue reading How Anne Sexton Won the Pulitzer Prize : David Trinidad : Harriet the Blog : The Poetry Foundation
Hello Dear Bloginistas, I would like to know your opinion... I have several possible fiction ideas I am developing and wanted to know how easy a transition you think it is from Poet to Novelist.
