    Hey guys, don't miss Graham Leese's message double-tacked to my 'a propos' post, that he's eager to spearhead a 'younger poets' anthology some time soon.

    It takes years and years of practice.

    I've notified the Poetry Society here in London of our little venture of 'An anthology in a week'...ish... You'd think it would be great news for all devoted poets... but don't hold your hopes of publicity too high, it has the reputation of being very much a 'closed shop'.

    A propos Lori's mention of referrals, wouldn't it be great if the poets here under, say,25, could follow up with a volume of their own poems and choices from their age-group?

      I think that's a great idea Michael.......there are so many talented young people here! That would surely be an interesting book. :) I'd love to see them take charge of a project like that.

    yawn...morning all. I actually dreamed that my inbox was swarming w/panicked emails from you all...something about not being able to make changes...why isn't _____ part of the mix...etc. Woah, wait, it wasn't a dream. Two things, then I'm getting coffee and a shower.
    - of course you can make changes to poems/bio; that's the point of a draft. Just send ONE email to me here w/changes.
    - I'm painfully aware of the typo on Michael's last name. Painfully.
    - there is no way we could incorporate everyone's personal referrals into the lineup, so to make it fair it was first come, first served aside from the original 'gang'. If there's anyone we unanimously feel is missing, pls say so NOW. I start a 'real' (that means paying) job next MOnday and my life goes to hell.
    That's 3 things but too bad. I need coffee. Smmmoooooccchhhhhh.

      May he or she or it emulate pale marygold, whose naughty little poem is way up there...wonder who that can be, or is it a *derivative* jest of LM and JC in concert?

      I just posted a poem in celebration. You can read it as a children's poem... or you can read it as an orgyasm.
