Poetics Serendipity

listening to Robbie Williams singing Straighten Up and Fly Right

Hello, everyone. I hope all is well out there. I have a couple of links for your browsing pleasure, then I am off to pack a car. The Robys start their move (all four weeks of it — ack).

Didn’t even know I was gone did you? I got side-tracked by laundry, which segued into making piles of papers, before my eyes lit on my computer… Oh, right, post. Aieee!

1] A couple of weeks ago I gave you Diane Lockward’s links for for magazines that take submissions during the summer, A–>F. I have the other two sections and in the interest of keeping everything together, will give the link for A–>F again. Head to Blogalicious.

Summer journals A–>F

Summer journals G–>P

Summer journals Q–>Z

2] I have a journal I would like to add and that is Waterways: Poetry in the Mainstream, a small, print journal that has been in existence for thirty-six years. They are theme based, so I am giving you the link to their themes You can see whether this might be your cup of tea.

3] I mentioned this next site in something last week but it deserves its own point, all to itself. WikiArt is a Visual Art  Encyclopaedia. I get lost in it for hours. Talk about a resource.

I was going to add a fourth, when I realised that even if you don’t plan to submit poems for publication, you can still spend a lot of curiosity time wandering around the magazines Diane has listed, reading the theme quotes for Waterways, and the WikiArt(!), well… you may never surface.

I will see you Tuesday for a prompt and I’m pretty sure Thursday is in the cards for more links. Friday is iffy, but I’ll know more as we get closer.

Happy writing, all.
