Interview in Moving Poems Magazine

Honored to have been interviewed recently in Moving Poems Magazine about my participation in The Poetry Storehouse project, and how I feel about putting poems out for others to use under a Creative Commons license. You can read the interview here.

More October Adventures, More October Gratitude

I’d like to thank Russell Streur, editor of The Camel Saloon, for publishing my prose-piece “Three Pigs and Wolf” on October 21st, and also Keely Honeywell, of RiverLit, for publishing “Monkey Trap” on RiverLit – 100 Words on October 20th.

For those who enjoyed watching Nic Sebastian’s remix of my poem “Joining the Lotus Eaters” into a video-poem, you may also like to watch Marie Craven’s video of the same poem here — it is fascinating for me to see this poem heading off on its own adventures! (Thanks again to The Poetry Storehouse for archiving some of my poems, and making them available to these amazing film-makers under a Creative Commons license!)

And just yesterday, I had a delightful collaborative exchange with Dave Bonta — he posted a series of wonderful photographs under the title “A Nature Walk at the Airport” on his Via Negativa blog, and I responded with a ten-poem cycle called “Tree Ring Cantos” which he generously published on his blog this morning. Marvelous fun!

Thank you, friends, for your continued support! (I wouldn’t be brave enough to do this without your encouragement.) Blessings, all.

“Joining the Lotus Eaters” poem has been made into a mini-film by Nic Sebastian

I’d like to thank Nic Sebastian for remixing my poem “Joining the Lotus Eaters” into a mini-film — you can watch it here.

This is one of five poems recently accepted by The Poetry Storehouse for archiving, and their volunteer readers made audio-clips for each one. You can read and listen to them, and explore other poems and remixes, at The Poetry Storehouse.

If you’d like to explore more of Nic Sebastian’s work, she has links posted on her WordPress blog Very Like a Whale.

I’d should also mention another bit of news — I recently found out that my poem “loved, further, crackles” won third place in the Uut Poetry/What3Words contest — you can follow the link if you’d like to read the poem.
