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.

    For Sasha’s Wikems, but you like haibun…

    Great info to investigate. Maybe next week when I’m out of state for about ten or so days.
