please thank the maker of your choice for the internet: Nikki Reimer

Sometimes I hate the internet for its myriad of treasures, distractions and wormholes.

Other times, like this week for example, it provides me with helpful links and tips when I've been too busy to write a proper post.

Interesting poetic divergences of the day include:

-a new downloadable poetry chapbook by Jordan Scott (via derek beaulieu on Facebook)

-work by sculptural book artist Brian Dettmer (via Gregory Betts on FB)

-Nico Vassilakis has a new website featuring his concrete poetry (via Christian Bok/derek bealieu on Twitter)

-7 MFAs question whether it was worth it (via Ray Hsu on Twitter)


I'm not particularly pleased that this list is so very male-centric, but I've grabbed the most interesting and recent online postings and really do have to get back to the Arts & Culture Service Organization Operating Assistance grant I've been working on for the past week or so.......Women friends: What's new and good online? What have you stumbled upon recently?

Nikki Reimer wrote a book of poetry, which will appear in print very soon.

The tacit assumption is a little saddening, that if you want to hear about writing by women, you have to ask women (correct as that may be). But anyhow, I learned about this from Joseph Donahue on Facebook:

In Transition: Selected Poems by the Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, ed. Tanya Clement.

Wonderful resource, impeccable editing.

You have to ask women, and ask women, and ask women, and ask women, and ask women, and ask women, and ask women again and again and again and again....

true. except when it keeps you from sleeping because you keep hitting that blasted "stumble upon" button. I'm actually glad it doesn't work on my current browser.
