There are a lot of articles online from White anti-racism “allies” of people of color written for racially clueless White people. Few of those articles are as smart and useful as this one. Kindly share it…repeatedly.
I promise to update you soon, little blog. It’s been crazy trying to catch up on the backlog of work due to circumstances such as the Snowpocalypse in Massachusetts and the loss of my Netbook use (because the charge cord broke, and I’m too poor to buy a new one).
So there are two fine single-authored poetry books to be published this summer via HCP and TTC before I can move on to the literary journal I’m publishing via TTC, another single-authored book, and finally this Autumn I am determined to publish my newest fiction and poetry books. I can rest on Thanksgiving.
Overwhelmed, stressed, back and neck are killing me. But I am elated to finally share this work with the world. Tired now. Sleep at last.
Hurrah! My first cooperative poem with 4 other poets, and also my first attempt to write a ghazal is published in the Summer, 2015 issue of The Ghazal Page.
I finished revising the upcoming “A City of Trees: poems of tribute 1″ this week. It’s the prequel to the Bukowski-inspired “What Good’s a View of the Charles…?” (2013). Both from ALL CAPS PUBLISHING.
And the proof arrived for “Playground: poems” by Margie Shaheed, winner of the 2014 Hidden Charm Press Poetry Chapbook Contest. So the book will be out this month.
So guess how productive I feel right now! Here’s my Amazon page, with three books I’ve written and the Extra MoJo! anthology I edited. I will post links when the new books are officially launched. Now, off to rest my brain!
Madly in love with Steven Tyler all over again (aka still) after hearing his new Country single.
National Poetry Month will be over Thursday. I got a lot done, had some fun, and am very tired. 3 more books to pump out this year? We’ll see. The ol’ back doesn’t love sitting at a table on a hard chair typing for hours.
For anybody who was reading, I stopped posting the 30/30 because the double-spacing was driving me batty. I need to get back into the habit of submitting. Lots to do now that my computer is broken, but not impossible. Scale back, and steam ahead!
