Poetics Serendipity

Hello, everyone. I hope you are well. I have a couple of links and a notification for you. Plenty of things to play with and consider.

1] Jenni B. Baker and Doug Luman of the Found Poetry Review have come up with a fresh twist on secret Santa. Jenni says: Doug Luman and I are excited to announce a new holiday poetry project, Secret Stanza. Here’s how it works: Sign up to participate by December 11, and we’ll assign you another poet as a “giftee” — you’ll buy or make a poetry gift worth up to $15 and send it to him/her in the mail. We’ll also give YOUR name to someone, meaning you’ll receive a poetry gift of your own this December. While not exclusively found poetry related (and not an “official” FPR project), we hope you’ll participate and help us spread the news! More details at http://www.secretstanza.com/

2] This next will keep you occupied for weeks. My California brother sent it to me. The Paris Review has sixty-five years worth of interviews with writers. Some names you will recognise, many you won’t, but they all write. Even if all you do is go through the fifty-two writers’ statements, that are there as hooks, you can ponder for hours.

3] The final find for the day is written for the novelists but can be adapted for the poets. Kat Stiles has posted, in She Writes, Top 10 editing Tips For Your Final Draft. I’m thinking final or no these are good tips for those who have any kind of manuscript from NaNoWriMo.

I will see you Tuesday for an image prompt and Thursday for more links and things.

Happy writing, all.
