Now that a busy summer is over and a busier year upcoming (I’m starting a PhD), just thought I’d slip in a quick update.
I’ve been regularly submitting to the Nine Muses Poetry Special Challenge. While not usually a prompt guy, I find the paintings and pictures I have to write about to be a nice challenge and the fruit of this labor are a different specie from my “normal” poems. Click here to check those poems out and the others as well. I’ve also added the most recent ones to the archive.
In other news, micro-chapbook number four will be published soon, also by the Origami Poems Project. It will be called Restaurant Ghosts (The Bolesławiec Ruminations). Bolesławiec is a city in Polish Silesia well known for a ceramic pottery tradition that continues today, though the tradition is German in origin. More to come on that later.
Most of my time recently has been spent improving my craft and rethinking my poeto-philosophical direction. So the number of submissions hasn’t been considerable for that reason. But I plan to get back into the submission game soon. So despite the casual maintenance of this archive blog, it’s only the beginning.
Have a pleasant Autumn.
